The problem is in autoconf, as the latest release does not support
CRISv32. The latest Debian package for autoconf is patched to
support it, thus a tarball disted on Debian have a config.guess
and config.sub support it. The correct way to solve this issue is
for the packager to update the config.sub and config.guess files
when creating the package.
