I noted that in configure.ac we use a number of AC_TRY_RUNs to check for
libraries, which could easily be AC_TRY_LINKs, which would make cross
compilation much easier. If someone wants to make a patch (you can look
at how i do checking for jrtplib in bug #168325 for an example) please
feel free. If no one does I may do it myself, but god knows when I'll
get the time :/
