Unfortunately this is not accurate, you'd break multilib support by

We will have to retain the lib/ vs. lib64/ layout for multilib anyway.
The proper thing to do is to copy the correct libgcc_s to the
corresponding dir (in both the staging dir and the target dir, if asked
to). Look at BR2_MULTILIB. If it is set, copy the libgcc_s that are
currently built. If it is not set, look at the target arch and copy the
corresponding (one) libgcc_s to the appropriate dir.

Care to do that?
