You may be thinking about this incorrectly - when doing a cross-compile you must make sure that the appropriately crafted cross-compile scripts are used for everything, for example I had to build SDL
in the cross-compile target and then copy sdl-config to i686-w64-mingw32-sdl-config in the appropriate bin directory and use SDL_CONFIG=i686-w64-mingw32-sdl-config when configuring/making stuff to
make it use the right one.
You do not want a conflict between sdl-config on the host and the target, it won't work (they use different CFLAGS and LIBS and such, which is the whole point).
