Pure LFS - configuring for target

I noticed in the build instructions for binutils that the target is not
explicitly defined (e.g. *./configure --target=i686-lfs-linux-gnu). This
means, I believe, that it is determined by config.guess by looking at 
the host. Don't you think pedantic host independence would require that 
the target be explicitly defined?

When in the build process do we get a default target that is independent 
of the old host?

This all may be moot if binutils or other packages don't do anything 
different based on the target.
