I am starting to think the `-m' should be totally removed and rely on the
default emulation. The problem with leaving things as-is; or changing
them is it forces the user to upgrade their Binutils installation. For
GCC 3.2 most users will probably(maybe) have Binutils 2.12.0 or later
installed. But I am not sure what is the most sensable value for 3.1.0,
or even 3.0.5 (should there be one).
