Mon 27 Oct 2008 04:50:20 PM UTC, original submission:

./configure --host=arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi
(or any other cross compiler) does not work, as the configure script attempts to run a number of test programs locally.

This has been fixed by users of screen by a variety of hacks, for example
(which essentially removes the exit from all relevant failing tests.)
