   | What host name does it guess during the configure step?
 No idea?   How would I discover that, I don't see any immediate signs of any
 reference to host names at all.
 It does use -mcpu=i686 on the g++ compilations though.
   |  I'm considering either disabling it completely or making it an option
   |  similiar to mplayer et al.
 Please do.   What I'm doing is building binary packages.   I currently
 have no use for this one at all, but who knows, some time in the future.
 What does tend to happen to me however, is then when I want something like
 this, I need it installed in minutes, then often used for just a few minutes,
 then (often) removed again.   Pre-built binary packages are perfect for that.
 (I don't distribute the things, so licence terms of some packages that
 sometimes restrict against building packages are irrelevant).
 However, there's no guarantee that they'll be installed on the same system
 they're compiled on - embedding comilation discovered info into the binaries
 when making binary packages is a huge mistake.
