Bug#152128: vcg: segfault on PowerPC

Package: vcg
Version: 1.30debian-2
Followup-For: Bug #152128

I'm getting segfault everytime I try to startup xvcg.  I suspect this
is an endian bug or a  long/int mismatch since the other bug report
was for Alpha.  The gdb backtrace seems indicates that there is stack
corruption and I can't get anything useful out of it.

My other copy of xvcg compiled from upstream (obfuscated) source does
not suffer this problem, so I'm guess that there's a problem with the
debian version which in addition to de-obfuscating the layout algorithm,
also attempts to resolve some of the sloppy C-typing in the original 
upstream source.
