Description:
------------
in ZendEngine2/zend_strtod.c in php-5.0 cvs at around line 233, there is a sanity check to make sure that certain combinations of defines don't exist ... if they do, a helpful error message is supposed to be dumped:
Exactly one of IEE_LITTLE_ENDIAN ...

however, if you should ever hit this bad mojo, your compiler will spout ugly looking parser errors

the statement should be prefixed with '#error ' so that the compiler will dump the helpful message rather than unhelpful crap :)

since the message is wrapped across two lines, a \ will be needed too

#error unfortuntaly doesn't work for all compilers, and will bomb out even if the statement is not reached, so we can't fix this.
