Fine, it doesn't have to match, why don't you want it to?  Don't give me
the historical reasons idea.

Scenario:
I know nothing of your *chosen* x86_64-pc-cygwin.
I have found a new compiler toolchain I want to build from source.
I use the defaults for the configure script.
I end up with host tools of x86_64-unknown-cygwin.
This now doesn't match your *chosen* x86_64-pc-cygwin.

Scenario:
I know nothing of your *chosen* x86_64-pc-cygwin.
I download the latest version of binutils
I use the defaults for the configure script.
I end up with host tools of x86_64-unknown-cygwin.
This now doesn't match your *chosen* x86-64-pc-cygwin.

What is your angst toward changing the *default* to match the *chosen*?
