I need to include an old open source project named judy for a legacyThis is a classic problem with software that doesn't consider
cross-compilation (and even when building for a similar architecture,
like genericx86-64 on an x86 host, you're cross-compiling in Yocto).
The makefiles generate a binary that it expects to be able to run.
This is a bad assumption as you're cross-compiling: that binary needs
to be built with the host compiler (BUILD_CC) instead. However, the
Makefile.am does this:
$(CC) $(INCLUDES) $(AM_CFLAGS) @CFLAGS@ -o JudyLTablesGen
A non-upstreamable fix would be to simply change that line to
$(BUILD_CC) $(BUILD_CFLAGS) $(BUILD_LDFLAGS) -o JudyLTablesGen [...].
As the project is dead, an upstreamable fix isn't useful.
Whilst I'm here that FILESEXTRAPATHS_prepend is redundant, and the
source of Judy looks like fairly typical autoconf so you can remove
your do_configure and just 'inherit autotools', this will also pass
the correct host/build/target flags and so on.
Also note that a more recently maintained fork appears to be at
