It is part of portable effort.  We have never directly supported
cross-compilation because no one has undertaken such a task.  If you want
to help us in that respect great.

autoconf documentation I assume would be your best bet.  I'm not an
autoconf person (as many know already on this list =).

<shrug> Security is in the beholder of the source.  I'd be more worried
about correctness of implementation when it comes to a libc.
