Bummer.

The AC_CANONICAL* stuff is the very core of triggering cross compilation
in autoconf scripts. Using it affects everything inside of a autoconf
generated configure script.

I don't know (You know I refuse to look into mono-packages).

All I can say is: --target=sparc86x doesn't make any sense.

Autoconf scripts should bomb out on it. You trying to patch around
AC_CANONICAL* inside of the configure script indicates the configure
script to correctly refuses to support this crap.

A correctly working configure scripts is supposed to handle --host,
--build and --target as being setup by %configure correctly.
If it doesn't, the work around would be not to pass them to configure,
i.e. not to use %configure, but to explicitly set it up manually.
