common practice ? :)

in the uClibc world we use $arch-$vendor-linux-uclibc to keep things clean and 
sep from the host glibc toolchain $arch-$vendor-linux-gnu ... when we 
proposed adding support for *-linux-uclibc and *-linux-newlib and 
*-linux-dietlibc to binutils, the cleaner solution was to simply accept 
*-linux-* in configure files

upstream libtool changed their files a while ago to accept 'linux*)' rather 
than 'linux-gnu*)' ... so my patch isnt treading into new territory, it's 
backporting updates from upstream libtool
