Thanks a lot for pointing me towards the compiler, it was indeed here the 
solution was found (we use a GCC compiler from denx in Germany):


sudo ./configure CC="/opt/eldk41/usr/bin/ppc_4xx-gcc" --host=none

sudo ./configure CC="/opt/eldk41/usr/bin/ppc_4xxFP-gcc" --host=none

The library now runs smoothly on my target and it solved my convergence issues 
with the standard (64-bit) IEEE doubles - great!

I appreciatee your assistance - it is easy to imagine that cross-compiling 
issues is not the most inspiring stuff when you have interrests in the math and 
implementation of an efficient multiple precision library development ;)
