Yes, I did check that.

I'd forgotten to update, but the patch I checked in does.

I cannot be certain, but it *appears* that the current config.guess
will never generate a triple matching i?86-*-sysvX* where X <= 4.
sysv4* and sysv5* are caught by different config.gcc logic.

You didn't say anything about i?86-*-lynxos*...

zw    They are calling true what their heart desires; what they would have
      be true, and if the iron bones of the earth or the light in the width
      of the sky say different, they will not permit these things to be
      knowledge within them, nor grant regard to any who do.
