Wine's configure script when cross-compiling

Welcome to the wonderful world of autoconf!
> The code that generates conftest.c does not provide for an argument to strerror. Why doesn't it? And how does the configure script succeed when compiling for x86?
If I recall correctly:
Because conftest.c doesn't include the .h file that declares strerror(),
and C doesn't have typesafe linkage, checking for the
presence of a function by linking to it with a totally bogus call
with no arguments should work fine.
It's not clear why the compiler is complaining -
did it somehow see a .h file that declared strerror()?
What compiler are you using?
