A relevant quesion would be whether this is [!s390x] or [littleendian].
There are 5 additional big endian architectures in ports,
plus people elsewhere apparently working on ports like arm64eb.
And while it is unclear whether s390x has any users at all on Debian,
ports architectures like hppa or powerpc do have users.
