There are a lot of packages like this that come this way from upstream
Options that have worked for me
1. modify the configure script and/or makefiles to not run the test program
2. In a few cases i complied gcc for my ARM platform, then compiled
natively.. I think perl was one of these.. It took hours to compile..
