For them, the proper -platform would be different (freebsd-g++, macos-g++, etc).
This basically tells configure what is the proper mkspec/* folder to
use for the host tools, while -xplatform and -embedded tells it what
are the proper mkspec/qws/* folder for the target.

Those folders contain compiler settings, flags and some times, include files.

We could restrict that to only when building x86, but it would still
be hackish, I guess.
