I'm afraid you're right.  This had never been a problem because we had
never needed link tests before.

dejagnu/lib/libgloss.exp has a hard-coded mapping from target triplets
to libgloss subdirectory.  Ugh!

I suggest the following:

Move the case ${target} from libgloss/configure.in into a separate
shell-script fragment, that sets some variable to the (list of)
directories in which GCC should search for crt files and libraries.

Then, get the top-level configure.in to source this shell-script
fragment and add -B$$r/$(TARGET_SUBDIR)/libgloss/$libglosssubdir(s)/

I could take care of this, if the maintainers of libgloss don't oppose
to this change.
