Sorry for the redirected url, here is the full one:

I think it is best to keep the correct version in a dpatch file which i
can easily send to upstream. I like to have only debian/ in the diff.gz 
(but it is only a matter of taste). I try to always use pristine 
upstream source.

Anyway the patch will be sent to upstream in order to have a release
with updated config.guess/config.sub. Since it is patched before
configure, there is really no difference.

Kind regard
