No no no. Don't do that. That's ffmpeg automatically checking for
certain features. E.g. different platforms require different headers,
so do various libraries. ffmpeg is checking for availability and
adjusting the build process. It doesn't necessarily matter if they're
not found! Not all of them can be found - e.g. some are
Windows-specific, some Mac-specific, and so on.

All that matters is the result of ./configure, and perhaps the first 50
and last 50 lines of configure.log to see what actually went wrong.

If you could please just strip your ./configure command line down to
only the cross-compile relevant options, and try whether that works.

And/or post the output of your complete ./configure, and those first
and last 50 lines (if it fails).
