I don't think it's better. I update (by hand) config.sub and
config.guess when it's needed and only when it's needed, this way my
packages do not need to build-depend on autotools-dev.
Even if you decide to update config.sub and config.guess very often,
you can put the commands updating these files in a non-mandatory
debian/rules target to be executed by hand (before doing dpkg-buildpackage),
and you would avoid the build-dependency.
