No, darn it, that's for setting the host system type.  How confusing.
So in the final solution, one would use --target to set what machine
the compilers will run on, and --define 'realtarget powerpc-405-linux-gnu'
to set what machine that compilers will generate code for.

I'm going to skip all that for today, but keep it in mind for later.
