Hi,

apparently there are problems on big-endian systems.

[GRASS5] importing .e00 files

I saw that right away, just didn't think to mention it.  And I got  
distracted from building the avce00 stuff.

But, when I got to the e00compr program, I noticed that the byte  
order isn't specified in the makefile.  Since e00compr and avce00  
both use the CPL stuff, I suggest you add -DCPL_MSB to the e00compr  
CFLAGS also.
