Bug#561534: fte-terminal: FTE displays garbage on Sparc

Package: fte-terminal
Version: 0.50.0-1.4+b1
Severity: important

On Sparc, FTE displays garbage and is completely unusable.

The likely reason is endian problems. It looks like the byte for character
and attribute is swapped.

You should either fix it or remove FTE from package list on big endian
platforms until this problem is fixed.
