I'd go with a message to the effect of "Can someone please
import the latest config.sub and config.guess from the upstream
official repo (at where.ever/config.git) which includes support
for my new target, for which I'm about to submit a binutils
port, pretty please?  I'll submit those patches assuming those
imports are in place."

Nah, just the mailing list archives.  At least AFAIK.
Asking for instructions ahead of submitting code doesn't hurt either.

No, not really.  You haven't been cursing or calling anyone
names, yet. :)  Just not doing things Exactly As Expected.

(And pardon me for suggesting also doing src/sim and newlib
ports too, so others can verify trivial patches and problems.)
