I'm not sure what you meant by CHOST - it's not an environment variable
that I'm familiar with. Who expects it to be set? Did you mean target

That patch was rejected upstream.
Running config.guess on cygwin 1.7.7 still intentionally produces:

Supplying bogus target triplets to build machinery programs is not
recommended. Many configure programs (mistakenly) compare $host or
$host_os (the autoconf names for the full target triplet and the third
member of the triplet) against the pattern cygwin, rather than the glob
cygwin*; and while those programs should probably be fixed upstream,
they at least have the justification that they match the current
config.guess program output, and that you probably shouldn't have
supplied a triplet that wasn't documented in config.guess in the first
