Sounds reasonable to me.  Can you please suggest patches to
<address@hidden>?  Submit a context diff to config.guess
and/or config.sub, and a properly formatted ChangeLog entry.

Yes, it probably is.  You can install Autoconf 2.61 when you have
the time.  You'll also need to install the latest GNU M4.

But this isn't urgent, since your by-hand tests sufficed to convince
us that the patch will work on your host.  I've installed the patch
into gnulib, and it should appear in the next coreutils release.

Newer Autoconf versions prefer "configure.ac".  "configure.in" still
works, but it's discouraged.
