Perhaps autoconf should de-couple "can i execute this binary" from
"cross-compilation".  Autoconf could test if it is possible to run
programs by compiling a small program and run it, and see if the
output is correct.  So even if it is cross-compiling, it would be able
to run tests that need to run a binary.
