Actually, I doubt, they need any AC_CANONICAL* macros at all.

I think, they actually want AC_CANONCIAL_BUILD and use $build instead of
$host, but I would not exclude they even need this. They seem to use
$host to distinguish building on Cygwin from building elsewhere and to
trigger using cygpath - I.e. build-system characteristic ==> $build.

Furthermore, using cygpath in many cases can be avoided, which would
render the whole stuff superfluous.

You are right, a grep tells, it's used at 3 locations.
At many other places they are using a hard-coded $(prefix)/lib

Nope, this is a public list, so feel free ...
