Thanks for helping me and sorry for the top posting.

I'm not sure if I understand so help me through this ok.  I made the  
change associated with my initials and echos.  Which I agree with  
however.  If you look at my change which is spread across the  
configure script.  It was obvious to me that I need to:

1. modify the help
2. insert the new argument handling
3. disable the default behavior of using uname to get targetos if  
targetos is not set
4. add default ignore handling to the main argument parsing loop.

I'm open for any suggestions on how to improve this minor code  
change.  But, I'm not convinced that this is a quick hack.  I would  
think of it as more of a syntactic sugar which solves a real problem.
