nah, i don't think so. it still has endianess problems on sparc64

ppc support is quite new, from -current some months ago, as i recall.
but the driver originally ran on little-endian machines for quite a
while on a broader base (i386, alpha).
not so many people used this on big-endian machines, i.e. the defpa driver
support is not that far is on the little-endian machines.
