That's sad, but as long as you have a cross-compiler available, 
you can cross-compile a compiler and use it for native

There are multiple feature tests with ngx_feature_run=yes, and 
each of these tests needs to be properly evaluated.  Just setting 
ngx_feature_run=no will likely result in incorrectly working

Similarly, there are multiple sizeof tests, and each of these 
tests needs to be properly evaluated.  Just setting ngx_size for 
all the tests to a fixed value is certainly wrong.

Each feature test with ngx_feature_run=yes and each sizeof test 
compiles a test program, and runs it to obtain the test result.  
To properly cross-compile nginx you have to provide correct test 
results yourself - that is, you have to run the test program on the 
target system, record the result, and then use it in configure 
instead of running the particular test program.

Note again that tests results are different for different tests.  
In particular, simply returning ngx_size=4 from all the sizeof 
tests is wrong and expected to cause problems like the one you are 
facing.  You have to properly check sizes of all the types, they 
are different.
