Currently _I_ have no opinion about whether %configure should replace config.sub
by default, however having %configure's overriding config.sub switchable is
perhaps better way.

I agree with this ^^.  At least packages like libtool/automake would like to
have this to be opted out.

Possible fix in attachment.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.

Now that redhat-rpm-config maintenance became saner... fixed in redhat-rpm-config-14-1.fc21, but with a small difference to your patch: I used %_configure_gnuconfig_hack (note the underscore prefix) for consistency with the similar %_configure_libtool_hardening_hack macro.
