Further clarifications to the text are still possible but I'm not going to consider this a blocker for 2.70.

This documentation was already improved through;a=commitdiff;h=fc1fe985411216165116520b444cdeaae237b6fb

It now says
"If the binaries produced by these tools can be executed by the build system, the configure script will make use of it in AC_RUN_IFELSE invocations; otherwise, cross-compilation
mode is enabled."
