The build directory was empty, but I specified --enable-libgcj (to perform
the test Tom Tromey had suggested).

My current best guess is that this might be due to:

  2002-01-31  Anthony Green  <green@redhat.com>

        * configure: Rebuilt.
        * configure.in: Replace CHECK_SIZEOF and endian tests with
        cross-compiler friendly macros.
        * aclocal.m4 (AC_COMPILE_CHECK_SIZEOF, AC_C_BIGENDIAN_CROSS): New
        macros.
