This is because clucene's configure script is too stupid to cross
compile properly. It is trying to do a test in which it needs to run
the resulting executable, but because you are cross-compiling it is
unable to run the executable. I worked around this problem by
hard-coding the m4 script in question (atm, I do not know which one it
is), running autogen.sh and then re-running configure. I believe I
just told it that it *does* support static const definitions, though I
have no idea if it's correct (on the positive side, the resulting
binary does work, at least on win32).
