Hi Rene,
'xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.EL.13.37.7.src.rpm' is the latest version xorg-x11
that i could find on net.
This version does not have the configure script. But it has a module
../xc/config/imake where the imake executable is built with the
compiler set in CC variable. Basically stuck at problem, as in not
able to execute cross built 'imake' in the current shell. Similar
problem mentioned here:

I wanted to see if cross compilation could be taken further by running
a gcc built imake. For this added copy command in the main Makefile to
copy gcc built imake from somewhere else just before executing the
imake command. With this i get the following error:

make[2]: Leaving directory `......./XORG/xc/config/imake'
rm -f ./config/makedepend/Makefile.proto
cp imake config/imake/              -------> # pkm79: command that i
added in make file
./config/imake/imake -I./config/cf  -s
./config/makedepend/Makefile.proto -f ./config/makedepend/Imakefile

Hi Prashant,

I went through the link you mentioned. It is mentioned there,  to pass
the --host flag to 'configure'. The version that i am now working on
'xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.EL.13.37.7.src.rpm', does not have configure script.
Please let me know where i could find later version src.rpm of
xorg-x11. I am assuming that later versions have configure script.
