           Summary: configure --target does not work
           Product: Build scripts

I tried to build a cross compiler configuring llvm with --host=x86
--target=arm.  The clang driver outputs x86 assembly and the only way
to output arm assembly is by specifying a -ccc-host-triple option.

It seems like clang decides to target the host machine by default, and
not the machine that has been specified on the configure line using
the --target option.  There are several places in clang that call
llvm::sys::getHostTriple() to initialize the *target* driver:

- lib/Frontend/CompilerInvocation.cpp: in ParseTargetArgs
- lib/Frontend/CreateInvocationFromCommandLine.cpp: in
- tools/driver/cc1as_main.cpp: in AssemblerInvocation::CreateFromArgs
- tools/driver/driver.cpp: in main
- examples/clang-interpreter/main.cpp: in main

In all these places I would suggest to replace the call to
llvm::sys::getHostTriple() with a call to a yet to be written function
llvm::sys::getDefaultTargetTriple() that would return the default
triple that we get from configure --target.

Comments are welcome on how to better fix this.
