3.4.5 may not be stable on all arches, but it is in x86. Our example
is for an i686 compiler, so whomever is not using x86 will have to
adapt the code anyway. Now it at least works for someone with a
copy+paste, as opposed to not working for anyone.

Hmmm, I agree that for an intelligent person it may seen redundant,
but looking at the note:

"Note: This assumes that you have CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu" set. If
you are using another CHOST, please use the appropriate gcc-config
line."

a) It only mentions CHOST, not gcc version
b) The piercing red text explains exactly what to do, while the note
is more of an explanation

Comments?

Cheers,
Marcelo
