Yes.  This code was written a long time ago -- I think it was 1996 --
and as far as I know hasn't changed substantially since then.  Back
then I knew nothing about target libraries or multilibbing, so I
ignored those features.

Actually, doing it by hand is a hack.  This isn't an exported name, so
it could change from release to release.  Someday it will (when we
start moving internal targets to their own namespace).

That's the issue.  Someone has to just sit down and figure out how we
can get information about the "real" top-of-tree, and then put this

Could you submit an automake PR for this problem?  That way we can at
least track it.  You can find Gnats by following links from the home
