Cosmetically, I like "host-only" instead of "host".  I think that the 
skeleton target should not be special: it should be treated just like X86 
or any other target (i.e. it is disabled when host-only is used).  I agree 
that cbe should always be enabled.

w.r.t. dejagnu tests, don't worry about it.  This is just a matter of 
enhancing the dj framework to be a bit smarter.  We can do this as a 
second step.
