this is a common problem, that the upstream sources have
config.{guess,sub} files that are outdated and do not recognize some of
the newer architectures. on a debian system, if you have, for example,
automake installed (apt-get install automake) you can copy newer
config.guess/sub files from /usr/share/automake/config.*

Alternatively, you can get the latest and greatest from
