Thank you for your work on this.

I'm not sure this is correct/justified.  Wouldn't it be better to have
just one build that could support both variants?  It is supposed to
work that way, but I don't think anyone tested this in practice.  It
would be good to see if that indeed works as intended, and if not,
report the issues which prevent that.

Specifically, I suggest to build Emacs _with_ native-compilation
support, then try using that on a system that has neither libgccjit
nor gcc/Binutils installed.
