I don't know what the problem is: these files are auto-generated during the
release process so they ARE always "updated". I think that autoconf generates
these files and I am currently using the version of autoconf (autoconf [GNU
Autoconf] 2.61) that comes with OpenSuSe 10.3.

That's the problem: The files keep evolving while the ones included in
autoconf 2.61 do not.

In Debian we moved those files to a new package called autotools-dev
which contains just config.sub and config.guess, so they are updated often.
According to the README in autotools-dev, there are more up-to-date
files here:

This is only maintainable if it can be automated, but it looks like things are broke:

cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/config -t co config/config.guess

 -> main loop with CVSROOT=/sources/config
 -> safe_location( where=(null) )
