The logic in Tiger.xs assigns all architectures other than alpha, i386 and vax as BIG_ENDIAN. This causes it to define BIG_ENDIAN on all x86_64 machines, which causes all test cases to fail. Here's a patch that fixed the problem for me: --- Digest-Tiger-0.02/Tiger.xs 2002-06-16 13:59:05.000000000 -0700 +++ Digest-Tiger-0.02-x86_64-patched/Tiger.xs 2011-03-25 12:19:12.000000000 -0700 @@ -11,7 +11,7 @@ typedef unsigned char byte; /* Big endian: */ -#if !(defined(__alpha)||defined(__i386__)||defined(__vax__)) +#if !(defined(__alpha)||defined(__i386__)||defined(__vax__)||defined(__x86_64__)) #define BIG_ENDIAN #else #undef BIG_ENDIAN kyle. -- Kyle Bresin
