I found the file which contains the above error message: gdk-pixbuf-xlibrgb.c. 
The endianess gets definend in the headerfile gdk-pixbuf-xlib-private.h. How 
to make that automatic? What do you think about the following: there is, as i 
already pointed out, a #define WORDS_BIGENDIAN 1 in config.h (which is 
correct). Why not make the defines in gdk-pixbuf-xlib-private.h depending on
