If I recall from discussions with Franz, these changes are modifications
to work with Qt, I think. In that context, is there something there that
can be fixed ?  Moreover, KDE and Qt run on Sparc, as they are available
for Solaris X86 - maybe kde-solaris list has some answers for endian

Originally libart was designed for Gnome, but it was so good it was
modified to work with Qt. Perhaps the KDE port to OSX has some patches..
It is a build requirement for some KDE packages.

Just a couple of thoughts where I would start looking.

A note of appreciation for your packaging too..
