Hi Andreas and everybody,

I bisected the build failure on the sparc64 porterbox kyoto.d.o, and
somewhat unsurprisingly, it pinpointed the following commmit, between
version 2.26.0 and 2.27.0:

    commit 93c11d1f01d6692bac05b3335850ef50947493ca
    Cause make test to exit with non-zero status in the event of a test failure.

I looked at the sparc64 logs for version 2.26.0 (wich did not fail to
build from source) and indeed, I see test failures that did not cause
a makefile errors, and that are not visible from the i386 build log.

I have not checked other platforms but my conclusion is that big-endian
versions have been buggy for some time wihtout any user noticing it.
Actually, I am not sure we have evidence that bedtools ever worked
properly on big-endian machines.

Altogether, this calls for removing bedtools from big endian architectures 
on Debian at the moment, until Upstream or somebody else steps up to do
the porting work.

I will fill a request for removal.

Have a nice day,
