Follow-up Comment #1, sr #108278 (project autoconf):

According to tha autoconf manual:

"If you use these macros, you must distribute config.guess and config.sub
along with your source code. See Output, for information about the
AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR macro which you can use to control in which directory
configure looks for those scripts."

This is a documented wart.  Yes, it would be nice if autoconf could install
these files automatically instead of documenting that you must do it yourself.
 But no one has been bothered enough by the wart to actually submit a patch to
automate things; probably because most people use automake which papers over
the wart.

In the meantime, since it is at least documented, I am forced to state that
this is only an RFE, and not a bug.
