Actually, you can just set _host to sh-elf, and it should find your  
compiler: We do look for $_host-g++, too.

I.e., you should be able to use
  ./configure --host=sh-elf

Alternatively, in line 820ff, you can add a case for "MY-DC-HOST- 
STRING" (e.g. "dc" or "dreamcast" ?) and then set _host_cpu, _host,  
CXX etc. to whichever values are suitable.

If it makes you feel better, we can rename _host_os to _host_sys. :-).
