hmm, unfortunately you did only take care for config.guess but not for
config.sub (2009-05-14), and so I still get with 1.4.2 release:
checking for arm-linux-androideabi-strip... arm-linux-androideabi-strip
checking libssh2 version... 1.4.2
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... Invalid configuration
`arm-linux-androideabi': system `androideabi' not recognized
configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub arm-linux-androideabi failed

after deleting config.sub and running buildconf it installed the newer
one from my build box and configure succeeded.
