The same is true of everything else that goes into the so-called
gdb-datadir, I think. What we should probably do is make the default
gdb-datadir versioned. This is in fact what we manually do at AdaCore,
by configuring with --with-gdb-datadir.
But if this is something you'd like to pursue, it'd be better if
you did so in a separate thread. I'd like to keep this purely to
track the release. And the suggestion above have drawbacks, so
it's not a no-brainer.
