   They are FSFS;  however, if endianness is *ever* an issue, then it'll 
*always* be an issue, surely?

   If it's currently a big-endian SPARC, and I merely copy the repo. dirs. 
onto a little-endian x86, if endianness is a problem then that won't work.

   All I have is:

$ uname -a
SunOS hostname 5.10 Generic_139555-08 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240

   .. and that doesn't really help me!
