The problem is not whether the approach works. There is a broken
assumption in _AC_COMPUTE_INT_COMPILE that whatever the arguments are
there will be case when it compiles and there will be cases when it

It's a purely shell problem. It's not a compiler problem. The testsuite
forces cross-compiling for and compiler that $CC is set to. I don't want
to make any workarounds for the compilers not capable of cross-compiling.
But I do want to fix an endless loop.

This loops on any architecture:
