+### Changes to building from the release tarball
+By default the release tarballs contain some of the scripts from the GNU
+autotools projects. These scripts are used for detecting the environment where
+the software is built. This includes operating system, architecture and more.
+Bundling these scripts in the tarball makes it mandatory for some distributions
+to replace them with more updated versions. The scripts are included from the
+host operating system where the tarball is generated. If this is an older
+operating system (like RHEL/CentOS-6), the scripts are not current enough for
+some build targets.
+Many distributions have the habit to replace the included `config.guess` and
+`config.sub` scripts. The intention of our release tarball is to not include
+the script at all, however that breaks some builds. We have now replaced these
+scripts with dummy ones, and expect the build environment to replace the
+scripts, or run `./configure` with the appropriate `--host=..` and `--build=..`
+Building directly from the git repository has not changed.
