xdrstdio_getlong and xdrstdio_putlong do not correctly work if sizeof(int32_t) != sizeof(long).
I have written an example program that can be downloaded from:
However if for some reason that is not available just create a program that uses xdrstdio. Write out a few bits of serialized data and get an md5. The md5 will be different on 32 bit platforms than on 64 bit platforms.
Get deity.kaosol.net/xdr_stdio.c.patch (Its for freebsd sorry).
I think that patch should do the trick tho I have not completly tested it out.
