TinyCC assumes that the target has the same endianness und floatingpoint
format as the host.

That requires separate compilation of the backends due to name clashes,
many ifs instead of #ifdefs and a lot less constants.

Who really needs more than one target and doesn't have enough space for
separate binaries?

Keep it simple.
