  Unbreak size and archive size generation of built RPMs on big-endian

Status in Ubuntu on IBM z Systems:
Status in rpm package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  We use the rpm tools version that come with Ubuntu Xenial to build 
  However, that very version still has a bug:

  On Big-Endian systems (and that's what we use), the Archive-Size field is 
handled wrongly.
  ---uname output---
  Linux mclinx 4.4.0-83-generic #106-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jun 26 17:54:02 UTC 2017 
s390x s390x s390x GNU/Linux
  Machine Type = IBM zSeries 2964 (z13) 
  A debugger is not configured
  ---Steps to Reproduce---
   Build an RPM on a 64-bit Big-Endian system on Ubuntu-Xenial and check the 
Archive-Size field of the built RPM afterwards:

  rpm -qp --xml example-1.3.0-1.s390x.rpm > example_1.3.0-1_rpm.xml

  With the broken version you should find contents like these:

    <rpmTag name="Archivesize">

  In case the Archive-Size is lower than 4GiB you'll always see a "0" as value 
here. The corrected rpmbuild command should post the correct archive size.
