Buildroot is trying to update config.sub and config.guess in the espgs
source tree to the most recent version. However, it appears in the
source tree ijs/config.sub and ijs/config.guess are dangling symlinks
(i.e. symlinks to a non-existent file). That's a little strange and
you should investigate the espgs build procedure to find out why that
is the case.
