i need to cross compile pango for arm board and the native system im working on is fedora-2.621 .

as part of this i had to compile pkg-config-0.23 into my own path /root/usr/moz .while i try ./configure --host=i686-linux --build=arm-linux --prefix=/root/usr/moz/ --without-x
i get the following error

checking whether arm-linux-gnu-gcc accepts -g... (cached) yes
checking for arm-linux-gnu-gcc option to accept ISO C89... (cached) none needed
checking dependency style of arm-linux-gnu-gcc... (cached) gcc3
checking for arm-linux-gnu-gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for extra flags to get ANSI library prototypes... configure: error: cannot run test program while cross compiling
See `config.log' for more details.
configure: error: ./configure failed for glib-1.2.10


this is what the config.log says in the pkg-config-0.23/glib-1.2.10
