If you can get that to even build, it may be a step in the right
direction. Another thing to try would be to build everything statically
for your host system first, to make sure that all works. That's much
easier for others to debug and fix than when you're doing a
cross-compile at the same time.

If you had both of those cases building, but not the static
cross-compile, then we'd know the build problems were exclusive to a
static cross-compile scenario.

I unfortunately don't know enough about the autotools "smoke and
mirrors" either, so I can't really help directly.
