Mine is the reverse.  I have to compile the scripts on a big-endian 32-bit
machine.  They are run on a little-endian 32-bit machine.  Lua does the
necessary byte swapping on the data at load time.  Of course, I would prefer
to have the compiled script in the native little-endian format, as load
times would be faster, but unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to
do this...
