It looks like there's multiple issues with this approach, but the
attached should fix the cross compiling problem. We also need to
address the fact the file test won't resolve all the way when
$sysconfdir is not specified on the command line. E.g.,
sysconfdir=${prefix}/etc by default, and then test -r
"${sysconfdir}/X11/fontpath.d" fails:

checking for ${prefix}/etc/X11/fontpath.d... no
