Nor have I. I'm not a configure expert, but as far as I can tell, the
--host option doesn't seem to do a whole lot. If you're experiencing the
same sort of errors as in the message above, I'd suggest trying to set
the CFLAGS and CPPFLAGS environment variables before calling ./configure,
to tell the compiler or preprocessor where to find the files it needs.
