I can't reproduce your problem, since I don't have Centos, and I don't
know which version you're trying to build, but from the config on a
recent version it looks like


(for example, --build=i386-linux)

could do the trick.

The fact that you don't have uname, however, is a bit weird.  The
versions of CentOS that I've used do have uname (and a quick google
suggests that 5.2 is supposed to have uname), and a surprising number
of things depend on access to uname so this might be a symptom of a
deeper problem.
