Did you compile on a native powerpc system or did you use a cross-compiler ?

I think the problem I am having is that configure is not setup to support
cross-compilation.  I have got a little further now by massaging the MCONFIG

configure script and submit any changes to the utils-linux maintainer.  I
will also let the linux-embedded mailing lists know of my results.
