[Vm-dev] Squeak-VM to PowerPC/Linux

I prepare a port of the Squeak-VM to a PowerPC/Linux-embedded system. I investigate ../platforms/unix/config/configure.ac in Squeak-3.10-4.src.tar.gz as given on http://www.squeakvm.org/unix/ .

Is there anyone around who already did the same job? And if so, did you ./configure or was there a need to change configure.ac and to run autoconf?

Can anyone tell me which version of autoconf is usually used with the above configure.ac?

At the moment running ./configure did not work for me (see Note 1) and changing configure.ac with a new run of autoconf goes more like a guess than like a logical process (see Note 2).

Kind regards

Note 1. 

cd buildPPCLx

../platforms/unix/config/configure --prefix=/home/pascalv/smalltalk/squeak/Squeak-VM/Squeak-3.10-4/PPCLx --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=powerpc-603e-linux-gnu


using built-in src directory /home/pascalv/smalltalk/squeak/Squeak-VM/Squeak-3.10-4/platforms/unix/src checking sanity of generated src directory... okay 

checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu 

checking host system type... powerpc-603e-linux-gnu


checking "size of int"... configure: error: cannot run test program while cross compiling 

See `config.log' for more details. 

Note 2.

followed by config like above
