The general list of possible projects includes a list of those cases I
know about where generic files do still have machine-specific bits, under
"libc architectures should be more like ports architectures regarding
putting configuration information in sysdeps files instead of
architecture-independent files.". I believe each of the six sub-bullet
points there is an independent cleanup, and none of them should be
particularly complicated to do.
(While this is mainly about architectures, much the same logically applies
to OS-specific configuration. E.g., see what I said about config.h.in in
