Many thanks, Josť. We do indeed use raw_format at the
moment.

Interestingly, I cannot compile xtl using the other formats
on a DEC running Digital Unix (admittedly an old version)
because the header files endian.h and byteswap.h do not
exist. No such problems under LinuxAlpha of course.

Will keep you posted.
