Err, nothing? It's not a directive. It exists for the compiled
program to test, not for the compiler to do anything with.

"sprinkled throughout"? It appears exactly once. Anyway,
__LITTLE_ENDIAN__ means little-endian code and data,
__LITTLE_ENDIAN_DATA__ means big-endian code and little-endian data.
Some of the Fujitsu parts have these sorts of modes.
I don't think the TI or Ross parts do.
