Description Bertrand Jacquin 2011-06-28 15:58:04 UTC
radiusclient-ng configure failed when cross compiling as no fallback method to
handling this :

checking for stricmp... no 
checking for random... yes 
checking for rand... yes 
checking for snprintf... yes 
checking for vsnprintf... yes 
checking for field domainname in struct utsname... configure: error: in
configure: error: cannot run test program while cross compiling 
See `config.log' for more details

Here is a patch to let user define utsname status by defining

There is another fix for /dev/urandom that is tested on build host. But this
file can don't exist on target host. So let user define ac_cv_file__dev_urandom

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. i586-geode-linux-gnu-emerge -vat radiusclient-ng
