Thanks for your patches! Just returned from vacation.

I took an intensive look at them and was wondering if we could
solve this in a way without all those #ifdefs?

Would it be possible to change the internal u_int32_t types
f.e. to __be32 and use htonl() on the bitmasks/shift operations?

What do you think?
