do you have a working download location for the latter? Right now,
http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/extensions.html has a broken link
and I'd like to address this if possible.

I'm not able to approve a change like this (that's left to some others
here), but if you'd like to put this up for download somewhere and submit
a patch against http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/extensions.html to give
it more exposure, that would a very good first step!
For details on how to submit a patch against current GCC sources, our
page at http://gcc.gnu.org/contribute.html should provide a good overview.
