The latter, or at least not necessarily inside the gcc subdir.

Like libcpp is intimately related to cc1, yet built in its own toplevel
directory.  Or libgcc is intimately related to cc1, although only at
link time.  But it looks like the functionality provided by your script
is either similar to libcpp or similar to libgcc, and should be handled
like those.
