Unfortunately, the official toolchain for cross-compiling for Pi is, as of yet, using an old ''gcc'' version (4.3.9) and hence, the configure script may fail to detect the ''FluidSynth'' library specifically. FluidSynth and MT-32 emulation are features that are very demanding on CPU processing power so it should be ok to skip them entirely. Alternatively, you could seek out a more up-to-date ''armhf'' toolchain for the cross-compilation, such as this [https://github.com/Pro/raspi-toolchain/releases Raspberry Pi toolchain by Stefan Profanter (Pro)] which, in its 1.0.1 version, uses ''gcc'' version 8.3.0.

'''Note 1:''' If you use the Raspberry Pi toolchain by Stefan Profanter (Pro), then make sure you read the instructions from the README file ([https://github.com/Pro/raspi-toolchain also available from the main page of the repository]. Specifically, this toolchain needs to be installed in ''/opt/cross-pi-gcc'' since it's not location independent.
