I am attempting to build LFS62 on a s390 system.

The configure seems to not be able to understand that the system is 
s390-ibm-linux-gnu.

The following are some lines that seem to be a problem running ./configure

/configure --prefix=/tools --with-tclinclude=/tools/include --with-x=no

configuring Expect 5.43.0
checking for autoconf... yes
checking configure up to date... yes
checking host system type... Invalid configuration `s390-ibm-linux': 
machine `s390-ibm' not recognized

checking target system type... Invalid configuration `s390-ibm-linux': 
machine `s390-ibm' not recognized

checking build system type... Invalid configuration `s390-ibm-linux': 
machine `s390-ibm' not recognized



This is the last line from ./configure

checking if WNOHANG requires _POSIX_SOURCE... configure: error: Expect 
can't be cross compiled

uname -a

Linux gltgnew 2.6.15.1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jan 30 15:43:18 CST 2006 s390 
unknown unknown GNU/Linux

This is not a cross compile because I am already running on s390.
Maybe expect just simply can not be compiled on s390.

Any ideas?

John
