Cross compiling xorg 7.7

Hi everyone !

I am trying to cross compile xorg 7.7 and I am having libtool errors when compiling libs, especially with libfixes and libX*
For some reason, libs that doesn't have libtool script v2.4.2 can't parse its internal dependency_libs correctly and give this error when linking  (see below).
I have a workaround for the libs using libtool 2.4: I patched form another library, using ltmain v2.4.2, and everything is fine. But for libs like libXfixes using libtool 2.2.6, I can't patch

Here's an example using package libXfixes-5.0, Using Centos 6.3

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --with-sysroot=/opt/verint/velix/i686/target --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=i686-unknown-linux-gnu CC=i686-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc AR=i686-unknown-linux-gnu-ar RANLIB=i686-unknown-linux-gnu-ranlib LD=i686-unknown-linux-gnu-ld CPP=i686-unknown-linux-gnu-cpp

libtool: link: warning: library `/opt/verint/velix/i686/target/usr/lib/' was moved.
../libtool: line 6727: cd: =/usr/lib: No such file or directory
libtool: link: warning: cannot determine absolute directory name of `=/usr/lib'
/bin/grep: =/usr/lib/ No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read =/usr/lib/ No such file or directory

What can I do about those libs ?
Thanks in advance,
