It would be easier to just use '--enable-kernel=current', but then
you could ignore (or skip over) the host requirement and end up with
a Glibc that only supports whatever your current host happens to be
running.  As Gilles pointed out earlier, if we specify a version that
you aren't running, at least you'll end up with a hard failure.
