This page is quite recent, I wrote it only a couple of weeks ago.

good point. it's a bug.

I'm not sure we can do that, some of those checks were
CHECK_C_SOURCE_COMPILES before and later changed to CHECK_C_SOURCE_RUNS
because compiling was not enough (in some corner cases).
I think doing CHECK_C_SOURCE_COMPILES in cross-compiling case and
CHECK_C_SOURCE_RUNS otherwise could be a reasonable compromise.

Please tell me whether it'll work
