Remove the "FIXME: To remove some day" code at the end of _AC_INIT_PARSE_ARGS that can set $cross_compiling to "maybe", and the corresponding code in _AC_COMPILER_EXEEXT_CROSS. The new behavior would be that if you specify --host=<anything> and
don't also say --build=<same anything>, cross compilation mode is

This should not be done for 2.70, but maybe it should be done early in the 2.71 cycle.
