    but the verification script on their side refuses to
    replace existing files of the same name.

By design.  (Not that I especially agree with it.)  This is why they are
not willing to change it.

    I was able to only uploaded
    signed copies of config.guess and config.sub once -- around mid-2004.

I suggest asking sysadmin to remove those versions; better to have
nothing there at all than obsolete versions, I would think?

    I am happy for the script to use a http URL--it will probably be
    easier for most users anyway.

My feeling too.

I went through all this same stuff for texinfo.tex, BTW.  My sympathies :).

BTW, I can make them available from ftp://tug.org, but I suspect that
might be more confusing than it's worth.
