Basically you're right but I hope by the time when a big endian machine
tries to run Linux these libc is really obsolete.  I've got a port of
HJ's libc 5.0.9 for ELF on my home machine and a two days old snapshot
of the glibc which is known to be working on MIPS machines and on
Linux/i386.  So it's port will be very easy.  Though I won't release
them before I tested them much more.  Oh, ... both support shared libs
using the ELF format :-)
