This means that Greg’s ‘config.guess’ (which originates from Autoconf)
is very, very old, and doesn’t know this architecture, leading to:

AFAIK Greg has been mostly unmaintained for several years.  Still, you
could try regenerating the configure machinery with a current Autoconf
and see what happens.
