Having received no reports of failures, I have applied this change to the 
repository as commit 17a6c8e38505fd8d5700febfe392e470c9c5fff8 ,
and also updated the metaconfig repository as commits
commits 907a968f1883e76eea71816c9428d036dcfff971 and
bed4b4c1ddba06b9f4653f7769acf6c91b9cba58 .

I have also updated the guesses in the canned configuration files
for epoc, symbian, uconfig, Cross, and plan9.

Still needed are updates to VMS and Windows, and Netware.
