How do use wildcards in filenames with nALFS

I have a situation here where I need to use a wildcard in a profile, like so:


The error I get from nALFS is that it cannot find the file.

Is there a way to use wildcards so I don't have to hardcode architecture 
dependant information in the profiles (like i686-pc-linux-gnu).

An alternative in the above situation could be running a command to determine 
the value. In Bash lingo it would be:

/stage1/lib/gcc-lib/$(gcc -dumpmachine)/$(gcc -dumpversion)/specs
