SYSTEM_HEADER_DIR is available in gcc/, and you could do
the $(if $(wildcard $(shell echo
>> $(SYSTEM_HEADER_DIR))/../../usr/lib/*/crti.o) there.  I can't see any reason to do it at make time rather than configure time.

Don't reuse end here.  Use a new variable.

Please update the comment for set_multilib_dir.  It's not a very good
comment, but it does describe the syntax, and you seem to be changing
the syntax.

The existing comment here is reasonably clear.  Please update the
comment to show why this change is correct.

s/detect/check/ or something along those lines.
