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
./autogen.sh 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.
