The Wii toolchain used "powerpc-gekko", which works out so far for
configure, but it might still confuse people. Then, I can build a
GameCube or Wii binary with this toolchain/port. My first approach for
configure support uses an external variable:

./configure --host=powerpc-gekko
GAMECUBE=1 ./configure --host=powerpc-gekko

An alias gets my vote, this way better and nicer:

./configure --host=wii
./configure --host=gamecube
