Well, for instance on my ISP:

SunOS shell 5.6 Generic_105181-14 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-2

The -a tells it to write all of the information.  The config.guess script
is organized to use the -m, -r, -s and -v options, e.g.,

        uname -m = sun4u
        uname -r = 5.6
        uname -s = SunOS
        uname -v Generic_105181-14

Some systems don't provide useful information when you use those options -
so the rest of config.guess is handling known special cases.
