As Henry indicated, you'd have to modify the compiler to get it to generate little endian code for a PowerPC target. But little endian PowerPC has not been tested, so it's quite possible that it wouldn't work (e.g., some assembler helpers in the system unit will probably require modifications or disabling, because changing the endianess changes a.o. the layout of set-type variables).
