FWIW, for the Cygwin build I used:
The simplest solution would just be to assume a "normal" architecture
(IEEE-754 representation for floats, two's-complement integers) and
scrap XDR completely. Anyone wanting to run GRASS on a Vax would
need to supply the appropriate code and integration effort.
 Vax is the most common architecture which doesn't use IEEE-754 for
its native floating-point representation, and the only one which Sun's
XDR implementation supports.
