Thank you for your detailed report. This is a bug that has been
corrected in later releases of config.guess. From the ChangeLog
2002-02-12 Ben Elliston <>
* config.guess: Set LC_ALL, not LANG, when running ld --help.
From Nicola Pero <>.

* config.guess (i*86:Linux:*:*): Fixed: export LANG=C before
running ld so that linker output can be assumed to be in English,
and it works with non-default locales.
We will update the config.guess and config.sub before R9B-2,
