Hi Tristan,

I am mailing you directly, because I couldn't find the right mailing
list for glade and you just released a 3.8.1 stable release.

Attached is a patch for configure to use AC_CANONICAL_HOST. (in master
_SYSTEM is already changed to _TARGET, but it also should be _HOST)
For a rationale, please see

??Can you clarify for me what this will change ?

??Currently from reading this I think it should probably be _TARGET, not _HOST.

To be fair, _HOST looks like it's right for "just about anything"..
I'm more curious
about what is the justification for this change, why do you for
instance want this change ?

Would changing _TARGET to _HOST mean that you can no longer
cross-compile Glade ?

???"The system against which the software being built will run on. This
??actor only exists, or rather has a meaning, when the software being
??built may interact specifically with a system that differs from the
??one it's being executed on (our host). This is the case for compilers,
??debuggers, profilers and analyzers and other tools in general."
