I am attaching the original bug report. More info can be found at, including a patch that apparently fixes
the problem on 32-bit big endian architectures:;filename=gperl-i11n-invoke-c_big_endian_32.patch;att=1;bug=724469

The patch author says that more work will be needed for 64-bit big
endian architectures.

Is upstream interested in supporting these architectures, or is
the ball in the Debian porters' court?

There's already a bug in RT for this, with a patch, and a similar
statement about 64-bit big endian architectures; I haven't checked to
see if the two patches are the same, but it sounds like they may be.

I would say "whoever fixes it first, everybody wins".
