stage. It seems that latest autoconf already has some support for universal binary case:


It's still a macro solution and thus keeps two languages in the code.

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.
