Re: Avoid running ./configure every time?

I think that the build-outside-the-source-tree idea is a good one for you
in this type of situation.  For example:

Source code is in /home/user/projsrc

Go to that directory, and create a directory called "x86build".  Create
another directory called "armbuild".  To build for the x86, go into the
x86build directory and run "../configure" with whatever options you need.

Same for the ARM.

Your object files and executable will be placed in the x86build/armbuild
directories, respectively.
