Hello guys.

Based on your instructions i changed my configure params, but i got no
success. I am using

                $(TARGET_CONFIGURE_ARGS) \
                ./configure \
--disable-ccache \
--disable-distcc \
--enable-cross-compile \
--arch=i686 \
--cpu=i686 \
--tune=i686 \
--disable-ipv6 \
--enable-directfb \
--disable-x11 \
--disable-xv \
                --cc=$(TARGET_CC) \
                --prefix=$(STAGING_DIR)/usr \
                --runprefix=/usr \

TARGET_CC is my cross compiler
TARGET_CONFIGURE_OPTS and ARGS are my cross env

My cross env has qtopia 4.5, alsalib, lame, libmpeg, and so properly
installed. Am i missing something?

I've got this error:
