Yeah.  Often the archname is the same as the first triplet part,
but not always.  I was thinking a link directly to the arch
entry on the new page, but it wouldn't be much of a point if
it's (hopefully) a short page.

I kind of liked the idea of a cross-reference from the table,
(perhaps from the snap-in-simulator letter!) but I'm ok either
way.

Actually, only targets that have simulators which have
snap-in-support through dejagnu and a newlib (or a similarly
simple snap-in library) configuration.  Most of the simulators
people mentioned do not AFAIK, but it'd certainly be doable and
worthwhile for GCC maintenance!
