Hello, I'm from ArchRISC-V Team, a community porting Arch Linux software to
RISC-V architecture. 


# Description

While packaging `httrack`, we found an
[error](https://archriscv.felixc.at/.status/log.htm?url=logs/httrack/httrack-3.49.2-4.log). 

(This link is the log about building processing our lord maintained.) 

The `config.guess` file is too old to work. 

So our team gives this advice. 


# Advice

You can find the patch
[here](https://github.com/felixonmars/archriscv-packages/wiki/%E6%88%91%E4%BB%AC%E7%9A%84%E5%B7%A5%E4%BD%9C%E4%B9%A0%E6%83%AF#configguess-unable-to-guess-system-type)
that how we fix it. 

Or just see the patch below.(in ArchLinux PKGBUILD file):

   cd "${srcdir}"/$pkgname-$pkgver

```


Please consider updating the configure script tools (Especially config.guess
file). As part of our duty, we do suggest our upstreams doing this once and
for all instead. 



Sincerely thanks. :)
