The discovery of bug#47382 (<URL:>) has led to follow-on effects and efforts to resolve this issue have led to an interesting question: how are existing projects communicating build/host/target triplets to their DejaGnu testsuites and would adding this information to Automake-generated site.exp files be useful?

I am asking this now because the next DejaGnu 1.6.3 release candidate is now expected to use EXTRA_DEJAGNU_SITE_CONFIG to insert this information into its own site.exp file and I am considering working the feature into an upstream Automake patch to add build_triplet/host_triplet/target_triplet to all Automake-generated site.exp files at some unknown future date.
