    On FreeBSD 5.3 i386 Tesseract 1.03 work fine:

    $ ./tesseract phototest.tif 1
    Tesseract Open Source OCR Engine
    Image has 1 bit per pixel and size (640,480)
    Resolution=200

    $ cat 1.txt
    This is a lot of 12 point text to test the
    ocr code and see if it works on all types
    of file format.

    64-bit or BIG endian problem ?

    tesseract-1.03 work on Solaris sparc only in 32-bit mode (gcc -m32).
