My intention was to put links in, although obviously a note would be in 
order where FPC and/or GCC departs from conventions. One of the reasons 
that I started that page was that some manufacturers require you to 
register with them before they will give you full processor info- I 
think that MIPS was one of those. At that point a link to a copy of the 
document which happens to have been published on e.g. a university 
website or at archive.org has some value to people who don't want to 
raise their head above the parapet.
