autoconf has standard support for running tests on the local machine for
example to determine the word size, if the networking layer supports
abstract sockets, and so on.  If the build is being cross-compiled these
tests fail straight away (as part of the framework, you can't run a test
in a cross-compiled build) unless the result has been provided in a site

Does waf support this?
