They don't tell. From the manual:
Fat binary, ‘--enable-fat’
Using ‘--enable-fat’ selects a “fat binary” build on x86 or x86 64
systems, where optimized low level subroutines are chosen at runtime
according to the CPU de- tected. This means more code, but gives
reasonable performance from a single bi- nary for all x86 chips, or
similarly for all x86 64 chips. (This option might become available for
more architectures in the future.)
