The patch adds some options to the config cache. When you cross compile,
there are some configure options that you should manually set in
config.cache file (enable config.cache file passing -C argument to
configure script).

For example, if you get an error like:

checking for abstract socket namespace...
error: cannot run test program while cross compiling

you should just add the following to you config.cache file

("yes/no" depends on you target system)

Please, next time try to understand the path before claiming that it
does not work.
