  • Resolving endianness issues in C akin to the Modern C porting, article. This should cover all of the ways endian issues can bite programmers and ebuild maintainers. As most software is written implicitly assuming a little-endian target such as AMD64 or ARM and this most commonly causes issues when compiling on PPC/PPC64, so this should be the base case the article deals with. That said, other platforms (where different) and odd edge-cases should also get covered.
Sam suggested using the Alpha porting guide as a jumping off point.
