the configury uses uname, which fails for cross builds. this issue tracks patches tor replace the uname calls with the use of macros set by AC_CANONICAL_HOST (host*, build*)

 dnl Ensure that if prefix is specified, it does not end in a slash. If
 dnl it does, we get path names containing '//' which is both ugly and
 dnl can cause trouble.

the following patch still keeps the uname calls for native builds, but sets the ac_sys_* macros depending on $host for cross builds. For now the cross configure fails for everything except linux and cygwin targets.
