Does config.guess do the right thing in this instance? I don't use
uname -a directly in my packages, but I do use config.guess (like many
projects that use autoconf). I don't have an x86_64 machine to check
and make sure autoconf does something sane on those architectures; I
presume that it does, hopefully?
