endian issues

The partitioning program im looking at makes calls to __cpu_le16 which
is defined in the /usr/include/linux/byteorder/ directroy but i cant see
an equivalent under the Hurd anywhere.

I dont really understand how endian issues are handled in linux, but i
dont think it should be a problem under the Hurd because its just on one

If hurd was on different endian type machines would it all be taken care
of by the microkernel anyway ?

I guess i should just find a way to ignore endian related code when
compiling under the Hurd.

Anyone have any pointers to good docs on endian issues?
