I don't understand what configuration file is at fault.  In
configure.in, I look at

  case "$canonical_host_type" in
    *-*-386bsd* | *-*-openbsd* | *-*-netbsd* | *-*-freebsd*)

If you mean that config.guess or config.sub is doing the wrong thing,
can you explain exactly what needs to be fixed?  What does
config.guess return on your system so that it doesn't match the above
