Hmm, to be future proof you should use the flags exported by gcc  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.
