I apologize for not testing this myself, but on 2 big endian operating systems cdirip since version 0.6.3 has been broken. Version 0.6.3 removed endian specific code as noted in the change log. Although binaries build they do not work. They run but can not extract cdi files, instead giving an error about unsupported image version. 

I am asking you to check your port as I am working on an OpenBSD port of cdirip and see you are using the latest version, building PowerPC binaries, and using no patches in the build AFAIK.

0.6.2 does indeed work on big endian by the way. On OpenBSD and OS X PowerPC.

Thank you for your time. Sorry I canít test this easily at the moment to confirm myself, it would be very helpful to let me know if it is indeed broken.
Try extracting a cdi file with cdirip on PowerPC. See if you get unsupported image version error and or canít extract the files as expected.
Use older version 0.6.2 if problem happens.
