Thank you for your detailed report. This is a bug that has been
corrected in later releases of config.guess. From the ChangeLog

        * config.guess: Set LC_ALL, not LANG, when running ld --help.

        * 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,
