[DOC] cleanups for optimization options

Minor cleanups for documentation of optimization options.  Tested with
make dvi/info/html/pdf; OK for mainline?

2007-10-30  Janis Johnson  <>

	* doc/invoke.texi (Optimize Options): Under -fcse-follow-jumps,
	show that CSE means common subexpression elimination.  Change wording
	for -fsee and define LCM.  Remove capitalization of optimizations
	for -ftree-reassoc, -ftree-pre, and -ftree-fre.

 This analysis is faster than PRE, though it exposes fewer redundancies.
