config.guess and Linux/GNU

I've noticed that config.guess is now calling my system:

  i686-pc-linux

instead of:

  i686-pc-linux-gnu

I have no personal opinion, but my understanding was the `linux-gnu'
was the FSF way of spelling the system name, just as GNU/Linux is the
way the FSF names the system(s) that some folks call just plain Linux.

Was this an intentional change?
