The problem with updating these files too often is that

 - We need to do that for all GnuPG related packages so that we get the
   same behavaiour.
 - We had cases in the part were the updated version supported a new
   platform but broke others.
 - Bugs vanish are hide due to updates.

Thus I consider it better to wait some time for config.{guess,sub} to
stabilize before replacing them.  Consider that GnuPG support more Unix
versions than just the common Linux distros and FreeBSD.
