[speex-dev] Decoding .spx with 1.0 on ppc produces noise!

I got my hands on the LCA 2003 CD today and I tried to listen to it on
my powerbook running Linux. Instead of getting speech, I got an earfull
of noise! Attempting the same experiment on an i386 with the same CD
produced understandable speech.

It seems that the output routine in speexdec converts the output data to
little endian short format, which is incorrect on the ppc architecture.
The data written to the sound device should be in native endian format
(this may be different from what is required if the data is being
written to a file). However, removing the endian conversion does not fix
the problem, and speexdec continues to play noise.
