Not sure if this is WAF 2.0 related - it is not handling at least one "bi-endian" platform correctly now.

Thanks, so the end result is the same -- tests for LITTLE endian, BIG
endian, LITTLE endian runtime are failing, BIG endian runtime succeeding
in both cases. Looks like the end result is that a define for the last
one didn't set.

I think my should
fix this issue. You'd need to add a compiler fix for AIX similar to what
Andreas did in 88216e63c97591685a6b9a0b8bca56c02abc767d on top of that
but define/undefine fixes I did should be able to help here.
