Ah, thanks.  I missed that one when reading through the common makefiles.

Right.  It may be that newer versions of gcc would show this problem even
on a non-multiarch system, but it's not really worth investigating any
further.  I'll clarify the description in the bug report.

That's what I've always done too, but then I didn't write the makefile in
question here.

Looking forward to that ...
