[aur-general] x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu vs x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

usually I build claws-mail-git from AUR by adding
--build=$(uname -m)-arch-linux-gnu to ./configure.

Today I forget to add it, so I expected a default of
x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, since /etc/makepkg.conf is configured to
default to it.

Sometimes I build without an AUR helper, but today I used yaourt.

To my surprise "x86_64-pc-linux-gnu" is used.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep CHOST /etc/makepkg.conf*
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep linux /etc/yaourtrc

Why isn't "x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu" used? Seemingly I'm missing
another config.
