I don't know why but here's what happened when I tried to do this.

[cube:/Users/chandler/curl-7.6.1] root# ./configure
--host=powerpc-apple-macos --with-gnu-malloc=no --bindir=/bin
[cube:/Users/chandler/curl-7.6.1] root# make CC="cc -pipe" CFLAGS=-O3
make: *** No targets. Stop.

What am I missing?
