I intent to commit the attached patch to link

from http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.6/changes.html to 
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.6/porting_to.html
and
from http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.7/changes.html to 
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.7/porting_to.html

Seemingly no one has written a porting-to document for 4.5 - and a 
similar link already exists for 4.4: from 
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.4/changes.html

I believe Benjamin committed this yesterday, right?  Thanks for
raising the issue, these links are good to have.

Yes - albeit as last item of Caveats which I think makes it harder to 
find. But at least there is now a link.

Thanks, Benjamin, for the committal and for writing porting_to.html!

Would you like to suggest a patch moving that / highlighting it more?

I don't think Benjamin is welded to the current position and look,
and I know I'm not.  Open for improvements. :-)
