Better detection for certain broken cross-compiling situations.

Fixes bug 9869; patch from Benedikt Gollatz.
parent 21ac2928
o Minor features (build):
- Assume that a user using configure --host wants to cross-
compile and error if we cannot find a properly named tool-
chain. Add --disable-tool-name-check to enable the user
to build nevertheless. Addresses ticket 9869. Patch by
Benedikt Gollatz.
