Maybe, maybe not. To me, the original patch seems better. When keeping 
$CC at the
end of the list, you'll get a cryptic error message. With this patch, 
the message
is clear.

Well, in this case, setting both --host and --build doesn't work.

So I'd be glad if the patch in question could be integrated. The reason 
I'm asking
is because there are a number of open-source projects affected by this 
bug, and would
be benefited if this bug got resolved.
