I was just talking about the script that generates eelf_i386.c,
( When that is passed the same ${host} (4th arg,
which is now 'none') as ${target} (5th arg), it'll do the right thing.
Plus 3 extra lines of C code, but surely that's not a problem :)

Just passing ${G_target_alias} 3 times in binutils/ld/Makefile
looks like it should do the right thing, in fact. It only
affects the generated emul .c file.
