  The configuration process for Gnash hasn't been optimized at all as
you noticed. Typically with cross configuration you wind up using the
--with-*-incl or --with-*-libs at configuration time. Does this not work
? I do agree each package needs a switch as to whether it's needed or
not to produce executables for that configuration. (like not needing GTK
when doing an SDL build)

  If we just "turn off" configure tests, then you're stuck adding the
flags by hand to the generated Makefile. The current config macros have
a few interdependencies, but I like the idea of not running tests that
are unneeded. I'll look into it.
