cross-compiling various packages for ARM [GishPuppy]

Dear all,

I've been playing with a SheevaPlug. I was able to have a fully functional 
system. However, now I'd like to add different "packages", like wget, zsh, etc. 
I cannot compile these packages directly on the Sheeva, it's damn too slow, so 
I tried to cross-compile, without success. Here is what I did for wget:


> ls

Makefile.in  README
aclocal.m4  ChangeLog.README  configure.ac  INSTALL      maint.mk      msdos

> ./configure --host=arm --without-ssl

configure: WARNING: if you wanted to set the --build type, don't use --host.
    If a cross compiler is detected then cross compile mode will be used

Until here, it works like a charm, but as soon as I do a "make", everything 
breaks up.

I must be doing something wrong, but since I am not very experienced in cross 
compilation, I'd need a little help. Would it be possible to do a sort of 
chroot or so ?

Note that I am running:

> uname -a
Linux computer 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Thanks a lot for your help.
