powerpc endian issue

I am using perf to collect data from powerpc and analyze the data on a
local server. 

When I am trying to use "perf report" the error "fatal:imcompatible file
format" comes up. It is noticed that the error is generated due to
perf_header size dismatch.

The issue is caused by that the powerpc is big endian and local server
is little endian. 

I am wondering if any of you have ideas how to solve this problem.
Basically, how to analyze the perf.data generated on a powerpc on a
little endian Machine.



Sincerely yours,
