This problem is a little tricky, I'm not sure I understand it fully. However,
the requested change is hopefully sane enough anyway.

We have a package for Octave in pkgsrc, and it seems that our build tools
expect a pre-defined MACHINE_GNU_PLATFORM to be used in various places.
This is passed value via --build normally, and is defined in configure as

The guess used by Octave differs from what we use, and it caused a very tricky
build failure.

for linux, we seem to use x86_64-unknown-linux whereas octave's build guessed

See the original discussion here:

I'm not sure what value $host has normally.
