Marcin Juszkiewicz - Oct. 3, 2012, 2:58 p.m.
For new architectures we need to update gnu-config for all recipes
which use autotools. Normally we do that with "autoreconf" but some
recipes (db, ncurses, slang, xinetd for example) have own do_configure
function so we need to patch them one by one.

This solution handles this once and for all. There are some recipes
which will need special treatment but that's because they have
config.* files in other directory than ${S}.
