    I am porting Mozilla's SpiderMonkey to MacOSX. It has a cpu configuration
    program which generates headers for the target machine and uses them in the
    main build.

    What I am stuck on is how to get the main build either to use these specific
    headers one for each build, or better to have some mechanism that is
    designed to deal with this specifically for XCode.

    I laster want to use MacOSX'es Javascript interpreter but I have legacy
    extensions on SpiderMonkey that I need for now, until I get them converted..

    Many thanks in advance,

    No the CPU config program jscpucfg, basically gets big endian/little endian
    settings and int sizes and writes a .h file to the command line for
    redirection to jscpucfg.h.
    Yes Carbon has some functions for native to bigendian/little endian.
    SpiderMonkey has structs that get defined differently on different

    I will follow this lead up.
