The tests done by configure that try to detect the size of certain
data types won't work when cross compiling.  You'll have to set them
by hand, or rebuild configure using a recent pre-release of autoconf
(2.49d, for example), in which these tests are done with a compile
test (that doesn't require running a program, something almost
impossible to do in a cross-compilation environment.

The variables you'll want to set in config.cache or in your
environment are ac_cv_sizeof_{short,int,long,long_long,__int64,voidp}.
