I think the problem is that configure is used to find out things that  
change arch to arch
like void * size rather then using preprocessor detection of those  

Testings for API functions being present would be arch independent.

On windows don't you just ship the answers as if configure had run?

Maybe Mac OS X is half way between the linux configure detects  
and the windows configure never run.
