The very next paragraph in the documentation says this, which I
hope explains things.  If it's not clear enough please let us know.

      If you mean to override the result of `config.guess', use `--build',
   not `--host', since the latter enables cross-compilation.  For
   historical reasons, passing `--host' also changes the build type.
   Therefore, whenever you specify `--host', be sure to specify `--build'
   too; this will be fixed in the future.
