Hi.  Thanks for the making the changes.

nit: I think the convention is one *-line per file, though I see
sim/ppc/ChangeLog doesn't follow that rule precisely.  I like your
original changelog entry better (fwiw).

Apologies for not noting this before.  I see ppc/ already
uses AC_TRY_RUN, so it's ok with me.  The problem with AC_TRY_RUN is
that it doesn't work in cross compilation environments.  In this case
all that will happen is that the sim won't support these extra
features so no big deal (And apologies if all of this has already gone
through your mind ... :-))
