configuration names (autotools)
autotools use a configuration name to identifiy a computer system.
These names consist of at least three parts. For this reason, the configuration name is sometimes also called configuration triplet. However, it is also possible for such a name to consist of four parts.
A three part configuration name is: cpu-manufacturer-operating system
A four part configuration name is: cpu-manufacturer-kernel-operating system
The manufacturer can sometimes be omited.
