Yup. This is due to Expat's configuration process.

It is an acceptably-ignored warning, but it does indicate that we have some
better/more work to do in the Expat configuration process. Specifically, we
will filter the message out. We do this today in Apache.

The underlying problem is that the AC_C_BIGENDIAN macro is implemented in
such a way as to always generate this warning. We either reimplment the
macro and fix it, or we filter the warning. For Apache, I chose the latter.
You can see the filtering in build/build2.mk.

Cheers,
