As explained in my reply to Waldemar B. [1], I've found a fix, so this
limitation will be removed.

I did not know about this. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll rework the
patch.

This check was written using information from [2], which lists all the
pre-defined endian macros. Maybe now GCC and Clang have a broader
support for __BIG_ENDIAN. I'll check.

Will do!

OK. I'll handle this new case.

s6-rc is the service management program. The definitions of the services
and their dependencies are written in plain text files, then compiled
as a binary database. As it is not sensible to compile this on the
device, I provide a host variant of the compiler (s6-rc-compile) to
build the binary database during TARGET_FINALIZE_HOOKS. The host
variant of s6-rc requires the host variant of skalibs, execline and s6.

Thanks for the review!
