This package installs an up-to-date version of config.guess and config.sub,
used by the automake and libtool packages. It provides the canonical copy
of those files for other packages as well.

This is a missing dependency of debhelper that I have been using locally for a month or so to build debs locally for autotools-based projects.
Scratch build for rawhide: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=32902041
I'm using it on f29.
Taking this review.
Is this package actually needed? redhat-rpm-config provides our config.guess and config.sub files, you could just have it install a symlink for those files to be available in that location, if debhelper really needs it there?

we need strip-nondeterminism for debhelper and to build with debhelper now we need add  to control file , but I don't see for what we need this, some example is great appreciated .
Anyway IMHO package should have the same of Debian package, i.e. autotools-dev
As suggested by Neal, one could instead make the redhat-rpm-config symlink those files where dpkg tooling is expecting them. I think it was needed by dpkg's support for autotools-based projects but I unfortunately no longer have the bandwidth to work on this.
