You forgot to mention where those scripts came from. I imagine you're
following http://www.libsdl.org/extras/win32/cross/README.txt ?

You shouldn't have to patch the configure script for endian checks
if they're using the standard check; just regenerate it with a modern
autoconf (1.52 or later, say). (And *that* may require a bit of
patching to configure.in; if so, please contribute the changes back
to the mailing list for the program you're trying to compile.)
You also forgot to mention what program you're trying to cross-compile.
