There is no point in using the cache variable, host_alias is defined
by --host, and most remain defined this way.  The only question is wrt
to the missing AC_SUBST.  I'd say, given that these guys are valid for
all the configures, that it should be done in AC_INIT with SHELL and
so on.

So yes, remove the /dnl.*/.

In a perfect world, host_alias should be `host', and `host' should be
`canonicalized_host' or something.  But bugward compatibility prevents
the right match between name and value of $build, $host etc.
