Yeah, I think so.

Well, I was using the royal "we", meaning me.  It will simplify a few
Makefile.ams in the gcc tree.

If gcc gets rid of and moves multilibs to the top level,
that will be nice all around.  The reason I pushed multilib code into
automake was to avoid having (or was it user
scripts?) add dependencies in an unsafe way.  Building them from the
top level will mean we can just remove all the gross code.

Having support for multilibs in a non-gcc tree is a different thing.
It never occurred to me that somebody would want that.
