I recall having a patch for openedition a while back, but had the impression
that the current version of config.guess had incorporated those changes.
(I do recall seeing some changes in that area, but no one commented on them,
so I thought it was ok).

I seem to recall that was in turn based on a copy from subversions, etc.

I don't like to pick up very-recent versions of config.guess/config.sub,
having been burned more than once by people committing incorrect changes -
the versions distributed with a couple of the autoconf releases, for example
had bugs (that I noticed).  So I'll pick a version and run with it for a
few months.
