I don't think libiberty is actually needed (gcc should be statically
linked against it) so it should be safe to include. 

More generally, it's probably a good idea for gcc ports to be setting
--libdir and a couple other options since there are other libraries,
etc that could conflict. See #20889. There were also a few emails about
that on -dev a couple months ago.
