Evolution EBook library in toolchain

I would suggest reading up on cross compiling. Do an sh configure -- 
help and look where you can statically assign a path for those  
libraries (I had to do this for asterisk).
export ALSA_INCLUDE=/usr/local/openmoko/arm

You must also remember that specifying this (and cflags) that if you  
are not correct, the linking messages may be crypted and hard to trace  
back to a wrong directory path.

Good luck! Will write a tutorial on this soon.
