[Buildroot] Host / Target system types

I have just cloned the latest git master and successfully compiled buildroot for my AVR32 target.

But I have noticed a slight (annoying) change ... the "target system type" used to be "avr32-linux-"
and it's now changed to "avr32-unknown-linux-".

This has the effect of changing the gcc compiler from "avr32-linux-g++" to
"avr32-unknown-linux-g++", and so all my makefiles no longer work.

I *could* change my makefiles, but I'd rather fix the problem.

I also noticed that the host target types are also listed as "unknown", so we have:-

checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

BTW this is on 64bit Ubuntu 11.04.

Can anyone help ?
