Thanks, Michael!  I just realized that I had not made two editorial
changes I spotted at that time.  Done now.  Better late than never. :-)

On the following I am not sure how to best go about, but somehow
this appears a bit confusing (to me at least ;-).  Can you think
of a way to make this more clear to "regular" users?

+      <li>The powerpc will now enable machine specific builtin functions when
+       the user switches the target machine using the
+       <code>#pragma GCC target</code> or <code>GCC target attribute</code>
+       code sequences.  In additon, the target macros are updated.
