host_alias use in configure.in

Hi all.

In configure.in there is a rather strange use of $host_alias
that seems to be a cut and paste from apr's configure.in
The $host variable should be used instead of $host_alias
since the $host value is the expanded form of what was
passed through config.sub.

For example:

% ./config.sub mingw32
i386-pc-mingw32

% ./configure --host=mingw32
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i386-pc-mingw32
host is "i386-pc-mingw32"
host_alias is "mingw32"

Notice that the $host value is the correct
one to use in most cases. This patch should
fix things.

cheers
Mo
