To correct myself, it seems $CHOST is not that Gentoo specific.
Have a look into the sources of zlib. You will find a usage example of
$CHOST in ./configure.
zlib is an interesting case, anyway. The default case of the unpatched
sources builds on Cygwin, but if you set the $CHOST correctly it runs
into a special CYGWIN case. It forgets to set $LDSHARED and the
Makefile breaks. Hence, you find a big patch for Cygwin.
Caution crosser: Runnig Gentoo/Prefix on Cygwin/Vista.
All stupid questions are related to that context.
