Well, I was talking about compiling an arm crash binary on x86_64 (with a 
cross-compiler). Anyway, this was not my primary motivation.

I'm still pursuing a cross-platform crash project (not necessarily merged with 
your sources), and getting as much as possible into upstream would make my 
life easier. So, I'm sending the bits that are beneficial to both.

This is in fact the expanded form of ia64-linux-gnu. You can see that if you 
run "gdb-7.0/config.sub ia64-linux-gnu".

Interesting. I thought it was consistent on the "pc" part. And this code 
snippet from gdb 7.0's config.sub suggests the "unknown" tag is not used:

        # We use `pc' rather than `unknown'
        # because (1) that's what they normally are, and
        # (2) the word "unknown" tends to confuse beginning users.
        i*86 | x86_64)
          basic_machine=$basic_machine-pc
          ;;

In theory, yes. In practice, there is no difference for all *-*-linux-gnu 
targets. BTW you had already hardwired the target specification for ARM and 
X86 if they are cross-compiled...
