So?! It is still incorrect for the --target of the GCC build to be
x86_64-pc-cygwin. My example didn't specify a different build from
host. I ran across this from a package that was refusing to accept the
config.guess build triplet so I tried specifying both. At that point it
failed to find x86_64-unknown-cygwin-gcc.
And ./configure --build=`/path/to/config.guess` will not work either as
x86_64-pc-cygwin IS NOT CORRECT. It needs fixed in the build process.
