Hmm, to be future proof you should use the flags exported by gcc [1] instead 
of doing the autoconf test.

Reasoning: E.g. with universal binaries on OSX you will have one autoconf run 
but use gcc -arch i386 ppc to compile for two different architectures in one 
run. In one of the two compiler runs the endian is wrong.
