 New to Linux: how are dev variables initialized?
I'm trying to build GTK under RedHat Linux but have run into a couple of
problems. After installing all the necessary packages (GCC, automake,
autoconf etc) I run ./configure as instructed. Everything works fine until
it checks for the definition of HOST. I can fake it by setting it manually
in BASH but I suspect there must  be a better way.
Any suggestions?

Look in the /etc directory for a file called profile.  It is
essentially a script that can be edited to set up your environment as
you wish.
