Uhhhhhhh, read ./configure.  It compiles and runs programs natively.
Configure doesn't NOT work when you're cross-compiling, so I must be
missing something here.

Which is why most all the Gnash configure macros don't use compile tests. I haven't looked at the latest ffmpeg versioning, but we only use it to print the version number in Gnash anyway when --version is used. Unless somebody has changed this, maybe it's just easier to do it in Gnash itself. If it's still a #define in ffmpeg, often you can get by just running cpp (gcc -E) to get the value.

We definitely *never* want configure tests that have to be run to determine anything, as it will break cross compiling.
