You might want to ask on the maemo-developers list -- more developers there.

Is this an ARMEL target or an I386 target?  There are sometimes some 
scratchbox problems with getting the armel targets to actually run armel 
programs (which is what scratchbox is all about, of course).  Most often 
problems with not having scratchbox installed properly but, sometimes, bugs 
in scratchbox, libc, etc.

configure should have created a config.log which might contain an error 
message.  You can also try creating a trivial C program, compiling it and 
running it yourself to see if it works.  The program configure uses is 

main ()

  return 0;
