Ah.  The src/MAINTAINERS file says, "Any global maintainer can approve
changes to these files, ...", which in that context I think includes you.
But since "..." is "but they should be aware that they need to be kept in
sync with their counterparts in the GCC repository," I've now looked at
gcc/MAINTAINERS and see that it has a category "build machinery (*.in)"
that you are not in.  (You are in its "global reviewers" category, which
the wording there suggests is in fact sufficient.  But I certainly can't
argue with wanting to hear from one of the build maintainers, though I do
hope they respond soon.  That said, it seems hard to imagine that my change
would be objectionable.)
