What kind of system (exactly) are you using?  What compiler (and
version) are you
using?  If you're not using GCC, you might want to try that.

BYTE_ORDER is supposed to be defined in postgres.h (actually os.h).

It should be either BIG_ENDIAN (4321) or LITTLE_ENDIAN (1234), depending
on what kind of processor you have.  Os.h doesnt set it for sgi

You'll have to determine what kind of endian your machine is, and add a




at the top of postgis.h.

If you tell me what endian your machine is, I'll try to automagically
set it
in the Makefile for future versions.


ps. IEEE defined what information will be in a FLOAT or INTEGER data
types, but
    it didnt specify what order these bytes should be in.  Different
    store the information in different order - they're known as BIG
endian and
    LITTLE endian.
