If anyone has osX running on a non-mac x86 machine this should also probably be 
enough to test the endian related issues.
I know there is doubt wether it is legal to run OsX on a non-mac machine, but I 
also now that several people have done it and that it is
technically possible.
You do need a machine which has at least SSE,SSE2 , it works much better if the 
machine also has SSE3.
Since my machine has no SSE at all, I am not volunteering.
(I still work on an early generation athlon which only has 3Dnow)
