However, this is not reached because there is a similar check a bit earlier that makes Configure bail out. Make the earlier check warn instead of croaking. The use case for this combination is supplying an external config.sh suitable for the target platform, avoiding the need for configuration probes. --- Configure | 2 +- 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-) diff --git a/Configure b/Configure index d5a7de3..df2bcda 100755 --- a/Configure +++ b/Configure @@ -2960,7 +2960,7 @@ $define|true|[yY]*) *) echo "Using targetarch $targetarch." >&4 ;; esac case "$targethost" in - '') echo "Targethost not defined." >&4; croak=y ;; + '') echo "Targethost not defined." >&4; croak=n ;; *) echo "Using targethost $targethost." >&4 esac locincpth=' ' -- 2.6.4
