I looked at this a while back. From what I could tell, some of the tests
were failing because GDCM was reading files incorrectly on big-endian
systems. The GDCM package is built with its tests off, so I think that
is how GDCM can be built for big endian architectures. Upstream GDCM
lists big endian support as a "major" missing feature, and unlikely to
work [1].
