I agree that using autoconf to collect OS type is much better. But I
think we should use $target, instead of $host for user-agent to
support cross compile scenarios. Also I've checked $target_os for our
build bots and their values are:
* OpenBSD: 'i386-unknown-openbsd5.0' ($target_os = 'openbsd5.0',
* Centos: 'x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu' ($target_os='linux-gnu';
* Ubuntu: ''x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu'' ($target_os=''linux-gnu'';

I've also googled for different autoconf outputs:
* MacOS: 'x86_64-apple-darwin11.2.0'
* cygwin: 'i686-pc-cygwin'
* mingw: 'i686-pc-mingw32'

We can use all $target triplet in user-agent or just $target_os. I
have no opinion on this matter. Any thoughts?
