It cannot depend on gcc. What about crosscompiling? What about non-C

That string is just orientative imho. So i simplified the algorithm to
handle most common situations.

The code in autoconf that do this is really painful. And i dont really
get the point of having a moré accurate and complex host string

Do you have any other proposal to enhace it? With --target, --host and
--build you can change the default string.
