Target version:3.4


The 3.4.0~beta4-1 in Debian has got a new lintian error because of the somewhat old autotools helper files (config.guess and config.sub) used in Sylpheed sources. The problem is briefly explained in this page:


While this can be workarounded on the Debian side, it's preferably to update it on released tarball. That way everybody has the support for latest added architectures, not only Debian :)

Thanks in advance,

Hi Hiroyuki,

I've noticed this in ChangeLog:


  • config.guess
    config.sub: updated to 2009-06-11 version.

Would be possible to use something more modern than 4-year old? :)

These files are still too old, and, for example, doesn't support newer architectures like the arm64 (https://wiki.debian.org/Arm64Port).

Thanks in advance,

Seems arm64 port is progressing, and now this has been filed as a Debian bug:
