build: include a dummy config.sub and config.guess in releases
There is no hard requirement for a config.guess and config.sub script in the release tarball. By passing --build=... and --host=... to ./configure, the scripts are not executed. When doing local builds, the ./ script (by running automake) will place a config.guess and config.sub script in the root of the source tree. Upon creation of the release ('make dist') tarball, the scripts are replaced by dummy copies from the build-aux/ directory. The main advantage to not include these scripts in the repository, is that there is no need to track upstream updates for them either.
