Description

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:

http://lintian.debian.org/tags/outdated-autotools-helper-file.html

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:

2013-06-07

  • 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:
