OK, then ... wouldn't it be better to install this header into a

gdb-7.3.91 installs $(includedir)/gdb/jit-reader.h
No idea what this is, why gdb does so and what it would be useful for.
To me it looks like a header without a corresponding library.
I don't know all the details, but this is the API that programs
should use if they want to provide their own reader for JIT
debug information. There is no need for a corresponding library
as far as I know. See:
Otherwise this file will conflict with other gdbs' versions of this file when having different versions of gdb installed in parallel and should this file change in future versions of gdb.
 I am building cross-gdbs to be installed in parallel to a system's native gdb and other cross-gdbs.
