packaging & AMD64

I just noticed that "configure" doesn't recognize (as in: "cannot
guess build type; you must specify one") my actual host, which runs
Updating config.guess in those pakcages (e.g. rsync) that still have a
very old one changes from "cannot guess" to "x86_64-unknown-cygwin",
which doesn't seem very right anyway: why "unknown" instead of "pc"?
Moreover doesn't seems correct to have host system type recognized
that way also: I don't want to produce packages that rely on the
prefence of an AMD64 processor, while just updating the config guess
let configure guess that "host" system type is "x86_64-unknown-cygwin"
I'm pretty sure that if I specify --build=i686-pc-cygwin should
compile things just like usual, and I think that it is the right thing
Is that so?
(maybe specifying --build in the GBS was not such a bad idea afterall,
and it was me that proposed to remove it some time ago, AFAIR -_-)
