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


With gdb-7.7, this behavior seems to have changed. Gdb-7.7 always seems 
to be installing man-pages non-canonicalized:

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.
