Selecting the target system

   You can specify three aspects of the target system to the GNU binary
file utilities, each in several ways:
   * the target
   * the architecture
   * the linker emulation (which applies to the linker only)
   In the following summaries, the lists of ways to specify values are
in order of decreasing precedence.  The ways listed first override those
listed later.
   The commands to list valid values only list the values for which the
programs you are running were configured.  If they were configured with
`--enable-targets=all', the commands list most of the available values,
but a few are left out; not all targets can be configured in at once
because some of them can only be configured "native" (on hosts with the
same type as the target system).
