Definitely useful, thanks.

Host should be set before we override arch, though.
I can swap those two lines when applying, but would prefer something
host=`uname -m | sed -e 's/i.86/i386/;s/arm.*/arm/;s/ppc64.*/ppc64/'`
(And --help is not printing the default value for cross_prefix, which
would be nice to change when we can have a non-empty one now.)
