We're trying to guess the build system, not the target. When
configuring cross-tools, it has always been necessary to specify the
target triplet with --target.

In a native environment, there should be numerous ways of determining
the system ABI (if it matters) without invoking a C compiler (which is
often not installed, leading to spurious problem reports from users).
