  As long as we say "documented" in quotes :-).  Here's the output for "configure --help" for these options:

System types:
  --build=BUILD     configure for building on BUILD [guessed]
  --host=HOST       cross-compile to build programs to run on HOST [BUILD]
  --target=TARGET   configure for building compilers for TARGET [HOST]

There's no specification for the format or content for these options.  By the way, the fundamental problem seems to be the lack of an entry containing "ppc64le" for ${UNAME_MACHINE} in the big case-statement. is still down so I can't check to see if this has been corrected in newer versions of config.guess.

The --build, --host, --target options are configure options which cause
config.guess to not be executed.  They are documented with ./configure
