Attachments: patch to add target-arch flag to configure script call

patch to add target-arch flag to configure script call

This package fails to cross-compile due to a missing configure flag that specifies the target architecture, as such, it attempts to build for the host architecture. If this is different to the target architecture, the build may fail.

I have fixed this by adding the target architecture flag to the configure script, a patch for which is attached.

The same problem also exists in virtualbox-guest-additions, same fix works.
