In the eventuality this proposition is accepted, should we have a

seems like it should be adopted by gcc first ?
I am not sure how the management of the top-level files work, so I'll
let others respond.
But as Andreas Schwab mentioned in our earlier discussions, there is
already such a check for gcc:
ifeq (,$(.VARIABLES)) # The variable .VARIABLES, new with 3.80, is
$(error GNU make version 3.80 or newer is required.)
Since we don't have a particular reason to want 3.81 over 3.80, we could
just re-use this check (make it unconditional), if that makes it easier.
for sim/, i have no problem having it follow gdb, although i was
on converting it to automake ...
I think that's a good thing then, automake probably plays better with
GNU make than other makes.
