Subject: diffstat: please update config.guess and config.sub for arm64
Date: Fri, 8 Feb 2013 23:56:16 +0000
Package: diffstat
Version: 1.55-3
Severity: normal
Tags: patch
Usertags: arm64

Please update config.guess and config.sub to a current version from
autotools-dev to support the arm64 architecture (aarch64-linux-gnu).  A
patch follows in case it helps.

I used the autotools-dev debhelper addons for this since that kind of
thing is less hassle than explicitly creating a patch for 3.0 (quilt)
sources, but you may like to consider using dh-autoreconf instead.  I've
been converting my packages to it and have found it a great improvement.

  * Use autotools-dev to update config.guess and config.sub automatically.
