[Pkg-mongodb-maintainers] Bug#848298: mongodb: Build for s390x

Package: mongodb
Version: 1:3.2.11-1
Severity: wishlist

MongoDB has recently gained support for running on s390x.

The official documentation says s390x is supported on MongoDB 3.4
Enterprise Edition.[1]

IBM has documentation [2]that says it's possible to build and run it
on 3.2. They have ~16 backported patches in their git repo branched
off an older 3.2 version. (I noticed at least one of the patches was
already applied in a more recent 3.2 release.

I don't have access to an s390x machine. I just know some people were
interested in seeing this work on Debian/Ubuntu.
