Description Jimi X 2000-08-03 16:36:17 EDT
there is a test in configure that will cause configure to fail if cross
This is just wrong!!

here is the snip from configure

echo "configure:10957: checking whether setvbuf arguments are reversed"
if test "${ac_cv_func_setvbuf_reversed+set}" = set; then
  echo $ac_n "(cached) $ac_c" 1>&6
  if test "$cross_compiling" = yes; then
    { echo "configure: error: cannot run test program while cross
compiling" 1>&2; exit 1; }

we don't test our RPMs for building in a cross-compiled environment; this is a
rather esoteric, non-common situation.
