    Libpcre/ PCRE MIPS cross compilation error

    I am rtrying to cross compile PCRE for a MIPS architecture. I need this as a requirement for snort cross compilation for MIPS architecture.
    I keep getting this error
    /bin/sh ./libtool --mode=link /usr/bin/gcc -g -O2 -I. -I. -o dftables dftables.olibtool: link: unable to infer tagged configuration
    libtool: link: specify a tag with `--tag'
    make: *** [dftables] Error 1

    This I get despite the setting of the variable CC_FOR_BUILD=/usr/bin/gcc while I am using the cross compiler for the rest.
    The configure script arguments are .
    CC_FOR_BUILD=/usr/bin/gcc ./configure --host=mips --prefix=/home/cross/wrt54g/pcre --with-pcap=linux

    Someone please help. This is urgent and I have already spent 2 days searching google for this error but to no benefit.
    Thank in advance

    Try using the option '--tag=CC'.

    /bin/sh ./libtool --tag=CC --mode=link /usr/bin/gcc
