Well, it didn't come from CVS.  It rather came from
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/config/>.  Which, BTW, contains
zero-legth files now, thus letting the mirrors overwrite
their copies, which sucks and puts Linus' "real men just
upload their stuff via FTP and let the whole world mirror
it" into perspective.    :-(

Anyways, I put in woody's config.{guess,sub} now and fed it
again into the build system.  Guess that should solve things.

Thanx, anyways
