Yes, I am sure. I do not know about you process (check, that you really
cross, not run via qemu or like). Build process _run_ i386_gendis to
generate headers:

noinst_HEADERS += memory-access.h i386_parse.h i386_data.h

noinst_PROGRAMS = i386_gendis$(EXEEXT)

$(srcdir)/%_dis.h: %_defs i386_gendis$(EXEEXT)
        $(AM_V_GEN)./i386_gendis$(EXEEXT) $< > $@T    <================
        $(AM_V_at)mv -f $@T $@


        @echo '*** missing $@; configure with --enable-maintainer-mode'

I think no. But this question is for original author:
