Bug#319174: shx(GNU/k*BSD): FTBFS: out of date config.sub/config.guess
The current version of shx fails to build on GNU/kFreeBSD,
because of outdated config.guess and config.sub.
The versions of config.guess and config.sub in shx are too
old to correctly support Debian GNU/k*BSD. A version is needed
from this year, which is available in the autotools-dev packages
that are in current sarge, and sid.
You can simply copy them manually, but it can also be done
automatically using the method described in
It would also be nice if you cans ask upstream to update
config.guess and config.sub in their next release.
Thanks for your cooperation.
