Things using configure tend to hate cross compiling since they often
believe they can create a test program and run it to find out some
setting.  If you cross compile then you can't run the executable and
hence the test can't run.  That might not be what is happening here,
but it could be part of the problem.

autoconf is simply evil when you are trying to cross compile.  A terrible
horrible mess.

config.log often has useful info in it of course.
