I've tested on parisc (big endian), and it works so far as parsing GPT
tables is concerned.  I am unable to create partitions though, because
sscanf(input, "%Lf", &long_double) seems to be broken on parisc.  This
is used in command_line_get_sector(), while 1.4 used atof().  My testing
here indicates that while parisc can't sscanf() long doubles, it can
sscanf() doubles.  Would it be reasonable to change
command_line_get_sector() to use "%lf" instead?  I note it uses float
when creating def_str, and I doubt you really nead a long double to hold
the number of MB on a disk.
