I get this behavior with both --enable-foreign and --disable-foreign,
but I don't see how it could be relevant that foreign interface is not
supported my platform when I disabled foreign. If I disable it then it
should skip this part which fails, right?

I'm not sure I understand this question. Yes, I am using a package-based
build which passes all flags to configure including --disable-foreign.
