Hi Tomek,

This is a gentle reminder to spin pkg with new config.guess and libtool

ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool- (1.6MB)
ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool- (920KB)

I also did check bind10 pkg, which also needs these files updated for 
ppc64le support.

Please let me know once you spin pkg
