You're not doing yourself a favour, anyway. 4-byte longs are
definitely not a good idea on Linux. What is worse, you are building a
cross-target, which means that configure is not even going to try
running any compiled programs, not that they work any better than
The thing to do is to look inside config.log and see what causes
configure to conclude that you cannot run C compiled programs.
