Description of problem:
The barcode screensaver displays incorrectly on a bigendian server. The program
creates its bitmaps little-endian, and needs to explicitly identify them as such.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run the barcode screensaver on a ppc X server
2.see the garbage.
Actual Results: garbled display
Expected Results: not garbled
I will attach a patch that fixes it.

patch to fix endian problem
still broken, a year later
This has been fixed upstream. I'll update rawhide xscreensaver to the
newest version some time over the next few days.
Updated packages should appear in rawhide soon.
