Cross compile bind failing, vis3 ???

Well, I tried with the BUILD_CC and BUILD_CFLAGS set. I hadn't noticed the cross compile test during configuration before since it has been working for the T1000 and T5140 builds. Now though it has "no" for the cross compile test.

Here is my configure command: (this is in a script that sets path to the solaris studio bin)

BUILD_CC=cc BUILD_CFLAGS="-Xa -fast -xstrconst -xchip=ultraT3 -xarch=sparcvis3 -mt -m64" ./configure --with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl --enable-full-report --without-gost --exec-prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib/libexec --includedir=/usr/include

Even after I edit the configure script to have cross_compile=yes, it still responds with no during the configuration.

You are cross compiling.  You need to set BUILD_* so that the host tools
are properly built.

	    BUILD_CFLAGS (optional)
	    BUILD_CPPFLAGS (optional)
	    BUILD_LDFLAGS (optional)
	    BUILD_LIBS (optional)
