that's what i figured.  i don't see why any distro would care what config.
{sub,guess} file gets shipped with package tarballs.  any sane package manger 
should be transparently replacing them with the latest CVS snapshot from the 
GNU config project.  leaving it to each package maintainer to manually update 
it is ridiculous.

not that i'm against upstream people from updating their autotool versions.
