glibc configure hangs

I think I have found the problem.

I looked at the 'configure' script and manually tried
executing the command in the section where it hangs.

It first evaluates some string I don't understand but
I copied it and it returned false. After that it
creates this program:

#include <stddef.h>

And runs it through 'cpp'.

When I use the cpp of my base system everything works
fine cpp exits with some error about unsigned type
which the configure script checks for. But when I do
this in chroot with the static cpp it generates the
same error but does NOT exit.

So I guess the problem is with cpp, but how do I fix
