Powerpc64 big endian work-around

I've discovered the issue.  The architecture has been hard coded in the SWT
internals for "ppc64le" as the "os.arch" in the following files:

eclipse.platform.swt/bundles/org.eclipse.swt/Eclipse
SWT/gtk/org/eclipse/swt/graphics/Device.java
eclipse.platform.swt/bundles/org.eclipse.swt/Eclipse
SWT/gtk/org/eclipse/swt/widgets/Control.java

Changing "ppc64le" to "ppc64" (or powerpc64) resolves the SIGSEGV issue on big
endian but breaks little endian.

The value of os.arch is set in
"./production/testScripts/configuration/sdk.tests/testScripts/test.xml" and it
may be possible to change this file to support both big endian and little
endian.  I'm still researching and testing.

In the interim, the attached patch is a work-around until a more elegant fix
can be provided.
