I strongly encourage this solution.

Anything that relies on the target triplet is going to break as soon as you 
move outside a pure Debian system. i.e. any patches relying on a particular 
target triplet are inherently Debian specific, and IMO should never be pushed  

The only way to reliably determine the current ABI is to ask the compiler, 
probably checking for a preprocessor macro that doesn't exist yet :-/
