Changing _TARGET to _HOST would most probably mean being able to
correctly cross compile.

"""To clarify a bit further: target is specific to *compiling* compilers
and related tools that produce system-specific output.  For example:
On a GNU/Linux system ($build) I build a compiler that itself will run
on FreeBSD ($host) but create code that can be executed on MinGW

Credit goes to Keith Marshall and Ralf Wildenhues for this
explanation (from the mingw-users at sourceforge.net mailing list).
I've inserted the *compiling* in the first sentence for extra

Software not falling in the category of "compilers and related tools"
simply have no business using ($target) and/or it's associated macro's.
