I'm auto-building toolchains for some 30 targets on a daily basis, it
wouldn't be any pain for me to hack a script to check the top-level
files for differences. I already have commit rights to gcc and src,
but not IMHO for gdb.

So... I'll prepare a script to spot changes to the toplevel files and
and merge it to the other repos.  Shall I only *notify* the other
repo's mailing lists, or wait for separate ACK for each of them?

What about the generated files?
