That is expected, then.  I've mentioned before that trying to build the
HC files on the bootstrapping host might not work, because these files
are meant to be built on the target.  The same goes for the invocation
of gcc itself: it is using flags designed for use on the target machine.

added, thanks.

Yes, I'll update the docs to say that too.

configure doesn't cope with different --host/--target at the moment.
There's no reason in principle why it shouldn't.
