Looking at the use of top_srcdir and HDR_PATH, it seems that multiple subsystems are using this feature. I consider this change a regression.

I did a build test from the top level before sending the pull request
and didn't catch this breakage as a result. This breaks when build is
run from the test directory.

We have had several problems related to khdr_dir and target and decided
to move away from it with this change.

That is the usual practice and if I notice missing maintainers, I add
them. We missed this one.

Will you be able to look at this and send a patch on top? I will
send another pull request before merge window closes?
