Well, I guess it could look like this on Big Endian ports:
#define ntohl(x) ((uint32_t)(x))
But with that definition you could compile broken code like this ...
static char David = "Holland";
foo = ntohl(David);
... on e.g. NetBSD/amiga. It would of course fail under NetBSD/i386
where ntohl() is a function that expects a uint32_t as the argument.
