+@item -findirect-dispatch
+@command{gcj} has a special binary compatibility ABI, which is
+enabled by the @code{-findirect-dispatch} option.  In this mode, the
+code generated by @command{gcj} does not need to be directly linked
+against its dependencies.  Instead, all dependencies will be looked

"will be"  ?  future tense?

+up at runtime.  This allows free mixing of interpreted and compiled
+code.  Code compiled with this flag will obey the guarantees in the
                                     ^honours

+binary compatibility chapter of the Java Language Specification.
+

Curiously worded, but OK.

Perhaps we should warn that all this dbtool stuff (and I guess the new
ABI as a whole) is an "early technology release" or somesuch?

OK.

Andrew.
