You are likely correct.
Back many moons ago I ran into some difficulties on a build, it was
recommended to include that set of switches, and things worked. I believe,
though could well be wrong, that it was actually Gibalou who provided the
information that I needed.
Recently, when I updated Cygwin, I tried running the build script. It
didn't build. I once again added the host/build/target line, and, surprise,
it once again worked.
I haven't had a reason to try removing the --target part, since it has
clearly not been causing harm (although, as I said, you may well be right
that it is extraneous).
I'll try removing it next time I need to do a configure.

As VLC is not a _compiler_ in any way, --target ought to be totally
meaningless. If it has any effect, it means there is a _bug_ in the
