I indeed managed to overlook that. Thank you.

I will resubmit the gdb part of the patch with that rule.

Nope. This Makefile.in is not created by automake.
About the changes that should go upstream, are you saying I should get
them accepted upstream before they can go into gdb / src? Please note
that several of the changes are specific to GCC/src; for example,
m4_rename_force would require boehm-gc to move to Autoconf 2.64, or to
employ the workaround we add to override.m4, somewhere in its code.
