autoconf and cross tools

I'm porting some libraries to Windows CE using the cegcc cross compiling chain (using cegcc or mingw32ce compilers).

When I use pkgconfig, the configure script displays the following warning:

checking for arm-wince-cegcc-pkg-config... no
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
configure: WARNING: In the future, Autoconf will not detect cross-tools
whose name does not start with the host triplet.  If you think this
configuration is useful to you, please write to address@hidden
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes

I run configure with --host=arm-wince-cegcc after having modified config.sub so that this host is detected correctly

So, I think that this configuration is useful for me :) Hence i write to autoconf ML. Though I don't understand why :)

So can someone explain me a bit what is that message for, and tell me what to do to set correctly configure (or something else) for that platform (if there is something to do)

thank you
