[speex-dev] speex on sparc seems OK

With the talk of speex possibly mis-behaving on PPC, I decided to
check the big-endian architecture I have handy - the Ultrasparc.

- playback of Intel platform .spx files appears fine on the Ultra 10.
- encoding a .wav file and playing back on the Ultra 10 worked too.

My evaluation is that it works the same on my Ultra 10 as it did on my
Intel laptop. But I must say the evaluation was made using the
built-in speaker on the Sun in a room with fan noise. Maybe headphones
may reveal flaws that I did not hear.

Tomorrow I'll play back the sparc platform encoded speex files on my

Naturally my software environment is the latest speex 1.0 Debian
packages, running in a chroot "sid" environment. I did not use the
--be or --le flags in any case.

Hope that helps,
