[GAP Forum] Cross Compiling GAP for Mac OS X

I am trying to build a universal gap binary for Mac OS X.

To get started I ran the following to try and test what the results of a 
cross compilation would be
./configure --build=i686-apple-darwin8 --with-arch=apple 

and got the following error:
checking unaligned access... configure: error: cannot run test program 
while cross compiling
See `config.log' for more details.
make: *** [bin/powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc/Makefile] Error 1

Is there a way to disable the above test? Am I doing this completely wrong?
Any and all advice is welcome.

Thanks in advance,

George Armah.

p.s. I am an undergraduate Math & C.S. major and am using GAP and the 
kbmag package to learn about the Automatic structures of
Coxeter groups.
