... I noticed this too, and my patch is given below (I have another
patch for mingw which fixes some printf format warnings too) ...

However, you would not be surprised to hear that this breaks on msvc
too, so I too was planning a larger re-write ... :-D

Subject: [PATCH] compat/bswap.h: Fix failure to determine endianness on MinGW

Since commit 452e0f20 ("compat: add endianness helpers", 24-10-2013)
added the 'ntohll' and 'htonll' helpers, the MinGW build has failed
like so:

        * new build flags
        CC credential-store.o
    In file included from git-compat-util.h:305,
                     from cache.h:4,
                     from credential-store.c:1:
    compat/bswap.h:56:4: error: #error "Cannot determine endianness"
    make: *** [credential-store.o] Error 1

The #error is triggered because the 'endian macros' BYTE_ORDER,
LITTLE_ENDIAN and BIG_ENDIAN not being defined. On MinGW, these macros
are defined in the <sys/param.h> header file. In order to suppress the
error, set the build variable NEEDS_SYS_PARAM_H, which will cause the
"git-compat-util.h" header file to include <sys/param.h>.
