Thanks for the bug report!

Try rebuilding in a clean directory from scratch, and pass 
--host=arm-unknown-linux-gnu to configure (or whatever the triplet is 
your compiler uses).

I assume that the configure script got confused since your arm cross 
compiler is in your path as plain gcc. If your problems persist, please 
put the config.log and a log of the build online somewhere.

If you are using a linux distribution on your arm device, you may find 
prebuilt packages in that distribution for arm, though. In general, we 
distribute just the sources on kaffe.org, and leave the actual packaging 
to debian, gentoo, mandrake, handhelds.org and other distributors.
