There are three types used in gnu toolchains:
target: architecture which runs binary to be compiled by built tools
host: architecture which runs built tools compiler
build: architecture which builds tools complier for target and build
in netbsd, src/tools/gcc has host == build, target = build.sh -m value.
for /usr/bin/gcc, host == target, and build = anything.
i like the commited change.
iain, the GCC build for /usr/bin/gcc runs a ./configure script as it
needs to build host progarms to run, so, when it comes time to doing
pcc properly cross, that's entirely acceptable as a solution.
