I think it was mentioned somewhere: These were the few ones not fixed by
Jim when he did the Sparc. I have no access to any usable host so I
can't do much (the RAR format includes big-endian stuff from
dry-running). The MSSQL should be easy but again, I have no gear. For
Office, I have no idea. I think we should ignore these and just say they
are broken on BE for now.
