    I am new at this and just downloaded the code.   my configure command does not complete.
    I am running in a bash shell wanting to try a port to lynxos 4.0  It wants host and or target but
    there is no documentation on what those values should be.  Even if I wanted to build a linux version
    ..what do you pass into the configure command... --host=??????   --target=?????? everything I try
    fails... --target=linux  .. i am running on a PC running windows with cygwin and lynxos dev env.

    bash-2.05$ ./configure --with-module=lynx --host=WIN32
    configure: WARNING: If you wanted to set the --build type, don't use --host.
        If a cross compiler is detected then cross compile mode will be used.
