Just v.R has been having some problems compiling a particular library
that needed libart. libart has a configuration script that should
properly be invoked before building the library.

Are there any plans to ease the invocation of such scripts or
alternatively how to I determine in python things like endianness in
size, short size long size etc etc. For all I know Darwin might run on
both big and little endian machines so it's wrong to rely simply on the
platform for this sort of thing.
