I am trying to compile on my Yocto system from source the SDL
http://www.libsdl.org/release/SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz and by running ./configure
I got error to configure the build

checking build system type... ./build-scripts/config.guess: unable to guess
system type

This script, last modified 2009-09-18, has failed to recognize
the operating system you are using. It is advised that you
download the most up to date version of the config scripts from



If the version you run (./build-scripts/config.guess) is already up to
date, please
send the following data and any information you think might be
pertinent to <config-patches at gnu.org> in order to provide the needed
information to handle your system.

configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one

What would be causing the problem?
