Maybe a patch should be sent to GNU config upstream so that arm64
becomes known to config.sub and config.guess as an alias for aarch64?

If the answer is yes, please do so ASAP and mail me as soon as you get a
go from upstream, so that I can fold the change in autotools-dev and
request a freeze exception to get the alias in Wheezy.
