Maybe after it has soaked for a while on master. The patch doesn't do
much for the configs most people use. (The patch came from
investigating IBM 145063. I thought I'd found a problem with
targ_emul being added to targ_extra_emuls but not to
targ_extra_libpath, but it turns out that this doesn't matter.
all_libpath gets targ_emul anyway. So IBM 145063 is still a mystery.)
