There's a first draft of general Git instructions at:
I haven't had a chance to start working on the wiki page yet. (We had a
major work project rollout at 5 this morning.)

That's correct; you have to always use --git-ignore-new because we're not
committing the new versions of config.guess and config.sub to the
repository. We could do that instead, but I think it's messy; I prefer to
depend on autotools-dev and update them automatically during the build,
since then only binNMUs are required when Debian adds new architectures.
Do we also have a patch for configure? If not, we don't need to run
autoconf during the build, which will help with some of that.

Are these files shipped by upstream but deleted by make clean? If so,
then this too will force always using --git-ignore-new.

It's extremely handy. I don't think I have any specific setup
instructions anywhere for that. I recommend using it with cowdancer; it's
a lot faster than the stock setup with a tarball. If you install
cowdancer, the cowbuilder man page has details.
