Interesting.  I'm intrigued.  :-)

Yeah, I didn't read your build script until after I'd written my
email, since it wasn't threaded with the rest of the mails on the
subject.  Sorry about that.  Had I read it first, I would have left
that portion out :-P

There's no generic --with-includes= or --with-libs= you can use, no;
however, you should be able to set the CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS
environment variables correctly for ./configure, though, and it
will include those appropriately.  For instance, if you know that
you need to include /usr/cross-compile/include and link against
libraries in /usr/cross-compile/lib, you can use:

CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/cross-compile/include" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/cross-compile/lib" ./configure --whatever blah blah

...which should do what you want.  I think.  If I'm understanding
your question correctly, of course - but I misunderstood it last
time, so YMMV.  ;-)

Hope this helps,
