Useful though the ppc64 handbook is, can I suggest that the section on CFLAGS be rewritten to be ppc64 specific.

I mean the guide is a good start, but the advice on cflags is (_still_) not machine specific.

Code:

Code Listing 17: The GCC march setting
# AMD64 users who want to use a native 64 bit system should not use athlon-xp
-march=athlon-xp


Also section on "5.e. Configuring the Compile Options" doesnt mention ppc64 at all.

Id just like to point people to:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=1095242

and renew the call for a table in the install docs that lists:

Code:

/proc/cpuinfo value     ||   stable cflags  || fastest cflags


(just like there is for the CHOST setting (excluding the missing ppc64 mentioned above ;).
