AFAIK there's nothing to be fixed here. If you specify both --build and
--host, autoconf sees this as a request for cross-compiling. Of course,
invoking the native compiler as a cross-compiler should /generally/ give the
same results as invoking it as "gcc", so it's entirely possible that it
doesn't cause problems on your packages.
