I think everything else is fine: float endianness detection (for marshal,
pickle, struct) is done at runtime. Integer endianness detection goes
via AC_C_BIGENDIAN, which understands universal builds---but only
for autoconf >= 2.62.

Do you know the right way to create a universal build? If so, I'm in a position
to test on 32-bit PPC, 32-bit Intel and 64-bit Intel.
