In config.guess, if you look for the string ivybridge, you'll find a C
program that determines your processor type from variables family, model,
cpuid_64bit, cpu_64bit, cpu_avx, etc. It would help if you could print
those variables and send us the result.
By the way, I hope you are not using any virtualization / emulation? Those
tend to mess with CPU identification.
