If your source has this bug, it'll only manifest itself on ARM during
the ./configure stage where you'll see
	"checking how to recognise dependent libraries... file_magic ELF
	[0-9][0-9]*-bit [LM]SB (shared object|dynamic lib )"

instead of

	checking how to recognise dependent libraries... pass_all
It'd save us a hell of a lot of pain if we could test this without
access to an ARM machine. I personally haven't heard of a solution; I
guess parsing all the automake macros without an ARM version of libtool
is too painful.
