AFAIK, you don't have to use an explicit option for this, configure is
supposed to be smart enough to find your cross-compiler when using the
--host switch, see http://www.lrde.epita.fr/~adl/dl/autotools.pdf, slide
25. I guess this merely depends on your cross-compiling toolchains being
installed properly.
