Yes, and that is what I would like to retain. What is a problem with
configuration macros? Byte order is hardware dependent option and it is
a thing that is not changed between two runs of the same program, so I
don't see a reason to make it switched in runtime, even supposing that
overhead is minimal. We have other switches of that kind, e.g.
sizeof(int), it is logical to configure all of this stuff together and
hardcode in the binary.

Best regards,
Andrey
