[fpc-pascal] Initializing constant (translate from C)

Here's an interesting one. In C I have this code:

#define ID1 MAKE_ID('A', 'B')

Where MAKE_ID is a macro that depending on the endianness of the target
will create either AB or BA.

How would I be able to translate this into Pascal? ID1 preferably would
need to remain a constant. I tried using an inline function without
success. If all fails I will need to define them all individually using
an ifdef for different endian systems. But this would be my last resort.

TIA, Darius
