|1) the configure script is AUTOGENTERATED by the autoconf tool set. There's generally no good that can come from messing about in it.
2) I have told you several times use --host=arm-linux-gnueabihf.
From your post 3 days ago:
Quote:sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/BLUEZ/bluez-5.50 --mandir=/usr/share/man --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --enable-library --disable-systemd --host=armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-strip... no
checking for strip... strip
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether make supports nested variables... yes
checking how to create a pax tar archive... gnutar
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-gcc... no
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking for suffix of executables...
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
Now, I would expect anyone paying any attention (and surely anyone who's as nit-picky as you seem to be) to think to themselves:
Hmm ... looks like the configure script is trying to use armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-gcc. That prefix is what I supplied as the value of the --host argument. I don't have arm7l-unkown-linux-gneabihf-gcc on my system. I do have, however arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc - maybe I'll try --host=arm-linux-gneuabihf and see if that works.
And lo-and-behold configure completes, and you can start make. and wonder of wonders it uses arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc, just like we want it too. Result!
BUT,BUT, and again BUT: until you've got the prerequisites (GLib, D-Bus) built for armhf make will fail anyway!
3) if you do some googling around for autoconf --target you should find information about the so called candian cross Cross-Compilation (automake). Take the time to read down to the bottom of the page. There it tells you that --target is used when compiling compiler tools i.e. ld, ar, as, etc (binutils) in a three-way cross-compilation. For example, when you are compiling binutils on an X86 to run on an armhf but will produce code for PowerPC. --target has NOTHING to do with cross compiling in the normal way. I have not tried it by suspect that since configure is AUTOGENERATED that the --target option always shows up in the script, whether its required or not.
Now, stop elephanting around.
