We aren't.  It's the confusion between target object files and host object
files, and the need for a compile rule other than .c.o that uses
${HOST_COMPILE.c}, that prompts the different extension.  The latter reason
is what started this whole thread--we have no "standard" Makefile rule to
compile host-based programs.
