Debian supports a lot of different architectures, and from time to
time there are new ones. Old config.{sub,guess} files often cause
build failures on new architectures, so, in general, the more updated
are those files, the better.

In either case this is something I can fix in the Debian package easily
and regardless of what is done in the upstream indent package, so it's
not a big problem for me.
