Nope, I only thought about changing it, then decided that target_alias
was safe.  Guess I missed a few spots.

This only changes the switch stmts in configure.in to use the canonical form.
We continue to use target_alias in the staging include dir as the name of
the target-specific directory (because that /is/ safe), and for building
installation pathnames (because that's what GCC/toplevel currently does,
and we should match).

Also I updated the porting comments/docs.

The switch stmts only affect cross compilers.  I tried building one using
the target in question ("--target=mingw32"), but configure died somewhere
in the binutils.  So I'm not committing this until somebody else can
sanity-check it first, while I go hunt down binutils braindamage.
