gdb-7.7 lost canonicalized man-pages

Hi,

When building for non-native targets, gdb < 7.7 installed a couple of 
its man-pages in their target-canonicalized form:

e.g.:
/opt/rtems-4.11/share/man/man1/sparc-rtems4.11-gdb.1.gz


With gdb-7.7, this behavior seems to have changed. Gdb-7.7 always seems 
to be installing man-pages non-canonicalized:
e.g.:
/opt/rtems-4.11/share/man/man1/gdb.1.gz

Is this change intentional or an accident?

To us this change is not helpful, because we install several targets' 
gdbs in parallel and would keep a separate manpage for each target's gdb.
