There is not much architecture-specific code in Lustre, and the less the better...

Probably the easiest is to just try compiling it and seeing where the issues are. Some are in the build system -we don't have configs for server kernels. That isn't needed on the client though. 

Big endian severs are not really supported as we have no ability to test or fix them.

Please keep the list updated with your progress, since this has been asked a couple of times here recently. 

Cheers, Andreas
