I hope that you are executing these grep commands in the libtiff 
subdirectory where the library is build.  This is the only place they 
are used.

% grep WORDS_BIGENDIAN *.c
tif_open.c:#ifndef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
tif_open.c:#ifdef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
tif_open.c:#ifndef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
tif_open.c:#ifdef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
tif_open.c:#ifdef WORDS_BIGENDIAN
tif_predict.c:#if WORDS_BIGENDIAN
tif_predict.c:#if WORDS_BIGENDIAN
% grep HOST_BIGENDIAN *.c
tif_open.c:#if HOST_BIGENDIAN
%
