Bug#294257: plattform specific preprocessor symbols in dev package
The include file
has the symbol definition
#define WORDS_BIGENDIAN 1
This is not always true. In the specific case of using the
to fulfill the prerequisites for the Mono source package mod_mono, the
name clash with the same symbol coming out of the mod_mono configure check

of Mono ASP support, see
This kind of name clash is neither unlikely (autoconf feature checks
copied more than any other kind of code frament, causing exactly this kind
clash) nor easy to detect (compilation will not be aborted).
The development package is a binary package that is targeted to "all"
should not contain globally visible symbol definitions with platform
I suggest removing configure generated include files from the development
