No, it will require a human-assisted pass over the sources, to
determine which instances of ` are for quoting English text,
and which are for other purposes.  This can be partly automated,
but in general some human judgment is required to change the
quoting style to one that's recommended by the GNU coding standards.

I've done this for other GNU projects; it wasn't that much work.
I expect Emacs will be somewhat harder, but it won't be too hard.
