Description Jan Synacek 2015-10-01 03:52:13 EDT
Description of problem:
config.guess doesn't recognize ppc64le.

The environment-modules package uses the script when running its test suite. Bundling the script or turning off the tests is *not* a solution.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
/usr/share/dejagnu/libexec/config.guess: unable to guess system type

This script, last modified 2012-12-29, has failed to recognize
the operating system you are using. It is advised that you
download the most up to date version of the config scripts from


If the version you run (/usr/share/dejagnu/libexec/config.guess) is already up to date, please
send the following data and any information you think might be
pertinent to <config-patches@gnu.org> in order to provide the needed
information to handle your system.

config.guess timestamp = 2012-12-29

uname -m = ppc64le
uname -r = 3.10.0-320.el7.ppc64le
uname -s = Linux
uname -v = #1 SMP Mon Sep 28 08:12:29 EDT 2015

/usr/bin/uname -p = ppc64le
/bin/uname -X     = 

hostinfo               = 
/bin/universe          = 
/usr/bin/arch -k       = 
/bin/arch              = ppc64le
/usr/bin/oslevel       = 
/usr/convex/getsysinfo = 

UNAME_RELEASE = 3.10.0-320.el7.ppc64le
UNAME_VERSION = #1 SMP Mon Sep 28 08:12:29 EDT 2015

Expected results:
The architecture is recognized.

Additional info:
New versions of config.guess work correctly.
