In fact, I don't agree with this change. Cargo packages are going to
use host-cargo, so it makes sense for them to select.

Today, it is not mandatory for a host package to be selected at the
Config.in level to have it built, and we don't enforce this. But it is
actually more logical to do it, and in line with our long-term idea of
having Config.in options for all host packages.

So, in fact I prefer your original patch, and I disagree with Baruch
statement that we shouldn't do the select. Yes, it is not /needed/, but
it is more correct with the select.
