Config.guess, config.sub in version control

Eric–

Why are config.guess and config.sub under version control? Aren’t these
normally symbolic links to the installed autotools on the local system?

Nope. Just prior to building tarballs I fetch the newest versions
available from their canonical home and copy them to our tree.

This way we’re within 3 months of the latest versions available.
autoconf and automake don’t get updated that often, and even if they
did, they’d be fetching them from the same upstream place I do.
