Compiling Issue on AMD64

Recently We have a New AMD64 HP workstation Opteron with 4G memory. It's also my 1st experience to do my jobs under 64bit envirment.

However there are still many issues on it. One of them is the compiling problem for many software, after ./configure, it complaines that the systems is probelmatic: Invalid configuration `x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu': machine `x86_64-unknown' not recognized.

Many of this problem have been resolved by giving a new config.sub that is aware of x86_64.
for example:

cp /usr/share/automake-1.7/config.sub . ./configure
