I am trying to compile NetworkManager 1.12.0 for armhf using an amd64
install of Ubuntu 17.10 and building the ARM software using buildroot.
During the configure step, I am getting the following

checking for /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts... configure: error:
cannot check for file existence when cross compiling

This was not an issue with NetworkManager 1.10.8 which compiles fine
with the same build environment.

I did some digging and it looks like the use of AC_CHECK_FILE in the file will cause cross compile errors like this.  See the
following mailing list entry from autotools:

if you look at, you'll see

AS_IF([test -z "$enable_ifcfg_rh"], AC_CHECK_FILE(/etc/sysconfig/network-
scripts, enable_ifcfg_rh=yes))

meaning, you should be able to workaround this issue, by `./configure --
disable-ifcfg-rh` ... and possibly --disable-ifupdown



Thank you, this solved my problem.  I also needed to add the "--with-netconfig=no" flag to get a compile to 
work with cross compiling as I was encountering a similar error.
