All I can offer is my understanding of the logic that's already there.
--with-cross-host is only set by the toplevel if what we are BUILDING
(not using) is a cross compiler. This precisely disagrees with the
comment in the toplevel configure.in:
# Passing a --with-cross-host argument lets the target libraries know
# whether they are being built with a cross-compiler or being built
# native. However, it would be better to use other mechanisms to make the
# sorts of decisions they want to make on this basis. Please consider
# this option to be deprecated. FIXME.
Who should I talk to about the toplevel script? gcc-bugs?
