I downloaded the nightly release version 1.0.3a1r9650 and attempted to
configure it disabling the fortran bindings for f77 and f90. However
it gives me a new error when checking for epoll_ctlon broken Linux

configure:error: cannot run test program while cross compiling.

Any inputs will be greatly appreciated. I included the outputs of the
configuration as an attachment.

Thank you,
