Porting to x86 is not on the agenda as long as there is no big endian x86 cpu available. porting it to a little endian system would either mean to loose binary compatibility or to have a speed penalty because *every* data would need to be flipped endianess-wise during runtime.
MorphOS, just like AmigaOS, shares structs from apps and the system, thus endianess is a matter for these OSes (other than e.g. OS X).

Btw.: No word on the Mini port - there are words out there, somewhere. It'll be available as soon as possible. I just got a mini myself some days ago. I'd expect the mini port to be available at Easter 2009.
