The problem is that AC_C_BIGENDIAN is broken in autoconf 2.62. This 
will result in APR_IS_BIGENDIAN in apr.h getting the wrong value, 
which might break other software and not just the test. In the case 
of testrand, the problematic code is in random/unix/sha2.c and not in 

Is there really something in 2.62 you need, or could you simply use 
2.61 to generate the configure in the tarball? Alternatively, you 
could grab the patch reverting AC_C_BIGENDIAN to the 2.61 behaviour 
from some linux distro and use the patched autoconf.
