I wasn't aware that is so specific for the gentoo build tools. Yes,
there it is a central environment variable.

Instead your posting became the origin of the official $CHOST setting
for  Gentoo/Cygwin. :-)

I file in a bug report to switch it.


Caution crosser:  Runnig Gentoo/Prefix on Cygwin/Vista.
All stupid questions are related to that context.
