 It looks better, I'll try to commit it soon.

 I think there are two places where this matters, libart and
render/xrgbrender/ libs. Please make sure these two are compiled
for big endian. If you can figure out a way to get the build process to
recognize and set up the endiannes automatically (since it must have
failed :)), please tell me. And thanks for testing karbon on your
hardware! :)
