No, you're right - my advice was pretty worthless as configure picked up 
all the wrong binaries.

While I can't say what the real issue is, or that this necessarily is 
the right way to do it, the following worked for me:

   export PATH=/usr/local/cris/r56/bin:$PATH


   ./configure --host=cris-axis-linux-gnu

(At least it builds what seems to be a CRIS library.  The "export" is 
not needed for configure, but for doing 'make' afterwards.)

The problem with running configure with --host=cris-axis-linux-gnu may 
be due to the fact that gcc-cris is just a script which calls the 
appropriate binary depending on what flags are passed (normally Linux 
binaries are built with gcc-cris -mlinux which invokes 
cris-axis-linux-gnu-gcc).  Configure seems to expect to find 
cris-axis-linux-gnu-gcc in your $PATH, which it doesn't.  What I did was 
simply to provide the path to the actual binaries.

As a side note, I tried

   CFLAGS=-mlinux ./configure --host=cris

which selects the correct gcc-cris compiler and all, but the subsequent 
'make' quickly fails.
