Sorry, I still don't quite follow, not that I'm the best person to try
to follow this.  That "pass either do" is confusing me too.

Perhaps you can give a small, self-contained example?

Now I'm starting to understand.  Can't you get the effect that you
want with "--target=HOST-TYPE --program-prefix=''"?  The documentation
suggests that this should do the trick; why doesn't it?
