Remember that Itanium(2) can use either Endianality - it's up to the
OS/platform code to determine which Endianality is in use. It's entirely
possible that there might be Itanium2 platforms with GCC that are big endian
in addition to those that are little endian. Hopefully things don't work
out that way...
