Re: porting app with gnu configure



That looks similar to the way I have done it when building appliations using
configure (e.g openssh) and I don't know of any better way.
Unfortunatly I have had the same problems as you, autoconf isn't exactly
optimal when it comes to cross compiling (I guess it depend on who wrote
the configure.in as well)
For some tests there might be options or defines to control the behavior
so the test is skipped, but for some tests you simply have to add your own
configure options or skip the test.

Good luck!
