top-level Makefile.  Installing config.sub and config.guess is
one such thing.

It happens that the way tools required by Autoconf macros (e.g.,
install-sh, config.{sub,guess}, compile, missing, or
are checked has be revamped earlier this week for other reasons,
and that this situation will no longer be troublesome with
