Whenever I have cross compiled something I have always just edited the
makefiles by hand.  If you are using a std Linux box then all the data types
should be ok and configure will pick things up just fine.

I don't remember but I think I compiled libraw at some point.  What are the
errors you are getting?  Now that I think about it you may want to make sure
you have it pointing to the kernel source you will be using on the walnut.
This is one area you must make sure things are the same.
