I dunno exactly what gcc does at the toplevel, it generates a Makefile.in
using autogen, so quite likely it does bypass automake altogether and just
uses that to feed configure.
But in any case, GCC hasn't changed, it's always been this way, at least
as far back as 2.95.3. In fact, that far back it even had two directories,
one called INSTALL/ and one called install/, both at the top-level. On
cygwin the two get conflated if you don't use a managed mount, and sometime
between 2.95 and 3.3 they got merged into one, presumably for the sake of
avoiding case-insensitive fs problems.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
