The problem seems to be that the compiler is run just "once" with same 
options and header files to produce object code for completely 
different targets.  Any executables that configure builds and runs in 
order to implement tests will be tested on the current host CPU/OS. 
That is why there is a problem.  The problem is not limited to 
endianness, although that is the most obvious issue.

The #ifdef hack that Apple prescribes could be used to handle this 
specific case but it is based on GCC extensions so it will only work 
for this case.  Maybe that is ok.

In a week or two I will have Leopard here to see what has changed.
