No need to fake it. Run config.guess to see what it is.
However, if you're going to the trouble of using a jail,
and you're not cross-compiling, you don't need to pass
--host, --build, or --target when configuring apps, I think.

You should create symlinks yourself after building crosstool.
One other thing: you might want to edit the spec file of the
resulting toolchain so it doesn't think it's a cross-compiler.
Otherwise it won't search your jail's /lib and /usr/lib.
