Patch to enable building on s390x

Description of problem:
switch-arch script is missing logic for building package under s390x (64-bit big endian)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Build on s390x system

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild -bb openbios.spec

Actual results:
Segment exception running forthstrap

Expected results:
Clean build

Additional info:
switch arch doesn't recognize s390x so it defaults to big-endian 32-bit. This causes problems in the definition of cell2pointer etc.
