Can you elaborate on this here? What, in particular, do you think should
change with Sebastian's patch? He's adding functionality that --target (and
similar cmake-isms) control the default target, not host of the compiler.

True that the host isn't used in a lot of places at the moment, but I'm
not sure why we need to keep the requirement that "host-triple" is
the triple we're targeting.
