So that's alright. But how do I go about getting a configure script to

use these binaries instead of the native ones? I've tried just about every combination of --host, --target, and --build that I can think of, and I've read http://www.libsdl.org/extras/win32/cross/README.txt , and that hasn't seemed to help me either. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Based on the directory configuration that you give above you should be able to just do `./configure --host=i586-mingw32msvc' but that may be dependent on the version of autoconf that configure was built with. I would tend to do `./configure --host=i586-mingw32msvc --target=i586-mingw32msvc --build=`./config.guess`' to remove any doubt about what the default is.


Here's what I get:

phil@rama:~/SDL-1.2.5$ ./configure --host=i586-mingw32msvc --target=i586-
mingw32msvc --build='.config.guess'
^ ^ should be a backquote not a single quote (key left of 1 on my american keyboard, ymmv). Your missing a backslash as well, --build=`./config.guess`, your executing the script named config.guess in the working directory. If of course that script is else where in your package then, you need to point to it appropriately.
