[Linux] Mac configure type

In many cases the build step involves running a configure script. Occasionally you'll run a configure script that gives error message stating that the host type cannot be determined.

To determine the correct release of darwin, enter the command uname -r.) You can alternatively copy two files into the build directory, that is, into the same directory that contains the script configure. 

cp /usr/share/libtool/config.guess . cp /usr/share/libtool/config.sub .
Occasionally, the configure option --build=powerpc-apple-darwin6.4 is needed to produce the desired result (again assuming we're using darwin release 6.4). 

In some cases, there are additional steps to be performed. ...
