As someone more concerned with embedded apps
than old SGI platforms, I would take issue with forcing
IRIX binary format support and keyboard forwarding just
because a big-endian CPU is configured.  Yes, I know
that this is for 2.3, and most of embedded apps are
2.0 or 2.2 based, but I figure it's better to speak up now...
