Yes, I've fixed it.  There's a typing problem in osdep.neb - it does an 
fstat on the .pinerc file to get the file size, and treats it like a long - 
its really an off_t (ie, quad).  On the big-endian 680x0, the first long of 
an off_t is the high-order bits, which are almost assuredly zero on a small 
file like .pinerc.  I've posted the necessary changes to this list before, 
but if you need them again, let me know and I'll repost.
