The change in behaviour is due to changing the top level configure
script from using autoconf 2.13 to autoconf 2.59. With autoconf 2.59,
if you want to build a normal package--one that will run on the
machine on which you are doing the build--and you want to say which
host to build it for, you must use --build, not --host.
All complaints should be directed to the autoconf maintainers.
