It seems we intentionally removed the config.sub (yay, git bisect!):

      build: outdated autotools helper config.* files in dist tarfile
      Our jenkins release task clones the source, runs ./autogen.sh (where
      config.{guess,sub} come from) and ./configure, before running `make
      dist` to product the release glusterfs-X.Y.Z.tar.gz.
      The config.{guess,sub} in the tar file come from the archaic autoconf
      in CentOS 6.3, which is what the glusterfs jenkins is running on.
      We should not be shipping the (arbitrary, old) config.{guess,sub} files
      from our jenkins machine.

  bisect run success

Patrick filed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1223937 for this during the
3.7 timeframe. I'm tempted to add the need to run autoreconf in the
release notes unless someone really wants the config.sub/guess files
back (we'll need to update the tools on the buildserver, but I would
consider that a good thing anyway).
