thanks for your bug-report.
this is a known issue and actually fixed in the current git-repository
for the debian packaging of pd-zexy.
unfortunately it has not been uploaded to debian yet.

@pkg-multimedia DDs: could someone of you upload the package, please?
@jonas: it seems like you already re-generated the changelog for the
2.2.3-2 package; did you simply forget to upload the package then?

note before you continue to read: this is obviously a hack, to make it
work on your machine; hopefully the debian package will be fixed soon

so: the line in the configure.ac tells configure to check whether your
compiler supports compiling with the given flags. chances are high that
your compiler does, even though your hardware cannot run the so-produced
therefore you really have to remove the line from configure.ac first.
then run
$ autoconf
to regenerate a new configure.
