Again, I'm cross compiling all the time since I build Cygwin on Linux
for development and package building, and I'm certianly not the only
person doing that.  This is the default case.  Not building utils and
lsaauth is the exception.  Therefore this scenario should be handled
explicitely by a configure flag, not the other way around.
