[PATCH] Remove AC_CANONICAL_TARGET macro from configure
The attached patch removes the use of AC_CANONICAL_TARGET macro from the configure.in file, and replaces it with the proper AC_CANONICAL_HOST.
The use of AC_CANONICAL_TARGET is usually limited to compilers and other tools that have to deal with executable code, and is not intended as the system where the code is going to run. For a complete explanation of the differences between host, build and target, please see http://blog.flameeyes.eu/s/canonical-target .

This is a trivial, one-line patch, though it should be applied to configure.ac, not configure.in, and then ./autogen.sh should be run, followed by ./configure ...
Any concerns about applying?
(Tested fine for native compile on Linux with GNU automake 1.15)
