Why don't you just lift "config.guess" from autoconf. You wouldn't have 
to use autoconf, but you could at least use the platform guessing stuff, 
since the smarts of that is already written, and is being updated, which 
means the group wouldn't have to keep it up to date, it could just be 
grabbed from autoconf every once in a while for updates.
