The x86 port does not support -mlittle-endian or -mbig-endian options (the -m
options are machine/port specific).  Note, all x86's are little endian, so you
don't need the switch in this case.  The -mlittle-endian switch is available on
ports that support both little endian and big endian, such as the ARM, MIPS,
POWERPC, etc.
