How old is this dateshift package?  Could it be that it was created with
config.guess and config.sub files from before the time when x86_64
systems existed?

In that case
- you may not have much fun with such an old package anyway (at least if
  it's really the package that I found searching the net, which includes
  a kernel modules),
- you could get by with simply installing updated config.guess and
  config.sub files in the package,
- but the libtool configuration (which looks quite ancient, ltconfig is
  not used since 1.5.x any more) could break things quite hard for you.

Maybe the best for you to either look for a significantly newer version
of that package, or a different package that provides equivalent

Hope that helps.
