     There's not many machines that have an Endian type
     defined specifically for them. 
     lq~> grep ENDIAN /usr/include/endian.h
     #define __LITTLE_ENDIAN 1234
     #define __BIG_ENDIAN    4321
     #define __PDP_ENDIAN    3412
     The year noted in the header of the glibc2 
     /usr/include/endian.h is 1996. 
     Kind of puts the "legacy" in legacy platform.
