On my system './configure --host=arm-linux' just displays the following

configure: WARNING: If you wanted to set the --build type, don't use
    If a cross compiler is detected then cross compile mode will be used.

and then configures stunnel without cross-compilation enabled.

I tried to find a step-by-step HOWTO on configuring cross-compilation on
my Debian/Lenny, but I failed to build a valid gcc/binutils.  Can you help
me?  It's hard for me to fix this issue since I can't reproduce it.
