I took a look at It's one of these self-extractors
made using Makeself: a shell script followed by a tarfile (in binary

It looks like the shell script just runs hplip-install after
extracting the tarfile. As a starting point, I would run, let it unpack the tarfile, overwrite the
config.guess and .sub it created in the target directory it creates,
and then run hplip-install by hand.

You might also like to report this problem to the hplip maintianers so
that they may update the versions of config.guess/sub they ship.
