*hmm* you think so? I think its not so clear (for me) what is meant with that 
-- configure --help --
Host type:
  --build=BUILD           configure for building on BUILD [BUILD=HOST]
  --host=HOST             configure for HOST [guessed]
  --target=TARGET         configure for TARGET [TARGET=HOST]
-- configure --help --

but what if a program compiled for i686-pc-linux-gnu is executed on a i586?
