On my machine

$ ../src/build/config.sub sun4

My config.sub does not contain the string "MODE" and so cannot produce
the output you show.  I'm using config.sub from Debian's autotools-dev

I associate MODE-ARG with libtool and that error looks like the error
libtool produces.  Have you managed to get libtool and config.sub mixed
