The first change I notice is when configure is checking for regcomp:

checking for working regcomp... configure: error: Cannot test regcomp 
when cross compiling

So we changed the aclocal.m4 :
<   errprint(__file__:__line__: warning: Cannot check for file existence 
when cross compiling
< )dnl
<   AC_MSG_ERROR(Cannot check for file existence when cross compiling)
 >     eval "ac_cv_file_$ac_safe=yes"

test regcomp when cross compiling]))])

So I can compile. This used to work on 1.3.2.
The diferences in config.cache are few and I don't think are related, but...

< ac_cv_c_bigendian=${ac_cv_c_bigendian=yes}
 > ac_cv_header_endian_h=${ac_cv_header_endian_h=yes}

< krb5_cv_sys_rcdir=${krb5_cv_sys_rcdir=/tmp}
 > krb5_cv_sys_rcdir=${krb5_cv_sys_rcdir=/var/tmp}

There is some place where I can see a log about changes? I can set 
breakpoints and stuff, but will be much more longer when I have no idea 
for where start... well, probably seeking this message errors...
