hg mv config.sub autoconf-config.sub
hg cp config.guess config.sub

and then fix config.sub so that it runs autoconf-config.sub and modifies 
the output to what you expect it to be from config.sub when running on 
this particular platform. Or do some other suitable workaround for 
config.sub. Perhaps it's easier to modify the input parameters rather 
than the output string, as we did for config.guess.
