A short note, yes, in the GNU doc of Autoconf:

 13.6 Specifying the System Type

 There may be some features configure cannot figure out automatically,
 but needs to determine by the type of machine the package will run
 on. Usually, assuming the package is built to be run on the same
 architectures, configure can figure that out, but if it prints a
 message saying it cannot guess the machine type, give it the
 `--build=type' option. type can either be a short name for the system
 type, such as `sun4', or a canonical name which has the form:


 where system can have one of these forms:

 os kernel-os
