it's simple. :) You are using a custom configure target which is missing
the $(CONFIGURE_ENV) environment and thus the $(CFLAGS), in particular
the -xarch=v8 one.

Better use the pre-configure-modulated hook instead. I have committed an
adjusted version of the Makefile.

  $ svn diff -r6089:6199 Makefile

In case you want to revert these changes just do

  $ svn merge -r6199:6089 Makefile
  $ svn commit -m "spine: Undid r6199"
