This is a change I committed August 23rd last year, and now found
this mail to gcc-patches@ in my postponed folder.  Ahem.

I'm not sure anyone still does any form of testing using this, but
at least the instructions (and links and how to build) are both more 
up-to-date, general, and also shorter now in case.
