I don't see why this is necessary. Upload a fixed libmurmurhash and then
we don't have to regress. The only reason libmurmurhash is currently not
built on those architectures is because the test suite runs the
non-portable reference implementation, which fails to byte-swap on
big-endian machines and therefore gives a (consistent) different output.
This has been fixed upstream in [1]. Just upload a -3 with this patch.
Unless there's something else I'm missing, I'm disappointed that this is
the action you take rather than spend the 5-10 minutes required to fix
the problem.
