I was able to run flashrom under Linux on PPC (big endian) hardware with two small modifications in internal.c and processor_enable.c (see attached patch). Not sure if this is the right way to do it but it seems to work for me.
i am resending this patch (unchanged) because patchwork did not pick it up correctly. please do send one patch per mail only in the future until we have something really working. :)
Sorry for bringing up this again but what's the status of this? It does works on old PPC-based Apple Macs and it still applies cleanly. Maybe it's time to apply this, otherwise we won't see any potential users very soon :)
it does not apply to the current version, but that's not the issue. It seems like a simple hack that was not thought through completely and I certainly won't merge it as is. IMHO the things mentioned in the comment in internal.c below the single hunk needs to be addressed first. I am not sure ATM what that even means and won't look into it soon. Also, I don't think it would even work in its current form (no programmer registration happens there that was introduced since the original patch)...
