Hi,
I need help with Large File Support on powerpc-apple-darwin; it's
broken in pdftex-stable and -trunk.

With a binary from -stable pdf inclusion is currently broken on
powerpc-apple-darwin 8.11; when trying to include any pdf (I'm testing
with the output of sample2e.tex) I get this error: "No space left on
device" and sure, when I fire up gdb it shows this:
-------------------
(gdb) bt
#0  0x90014ba8 in write ()
#1  0x90015cbc in _swrite ()
#2  0x900055f8 in __sflush ()
#3  0x9006abe0 in fseeko ()
#4  0x001c9aac in xfseeko (f=0xa000dbe4, offset=64656437686498,
wherefrom=0, filename=0x232ae80 "test-inc") at
../../../src/texk/kpathsea/xfseeko.c:28
#5  0x000cfe80 in writestreamlength (length=3909,

../../../../src/texk/web2c/pdftexdir/utils.c:412
#6  0x00061a88 in pdfendstream () at pdftex1.c:8395
-------------------
The offset is a bit large.:-{

This is regardless of --disable-largefile.

When compiling -stable I get these nice warnings:

of the previous definition
-------------------
And sure enough obsdcompat/config.h has this:
-------------------
/* Define to 1 if your processor stores words with the most significant byte
   first (like Motorola and SPARC, unlike Intel and VAX). */
#define WORDS_BIGENDIAN 1
-------------------
while texmfmp.h has this:
/* If we have these macros, use them, as they provide a better guide to
   the endianess when cross-compiling. */
-------------------
#if defined (BYTE_ORDER) && defined (BIG_ENDIAN) && defined (LITTLE_ENDIAN)
#ifdef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
#undef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
#endif
#if BYTE_ORDER == BIG_ENDIAN
#define WORDS_BIGENDIAN
#endif
#endif
/* More of the same, but now NeXT-specific. */
#ifdef NeXT
#ifdef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
#undef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
#endif
#ifdef __BIG_ENDIAN__
#define WORDS_BIGENDIAN
#endif
#endif
-------------------
Might this be the reason?

Best
