Thanks, looks good!  Please consider Bernhard's comments on the one
below and go ahead committing this.

It would be nice to have gcc-4.2/changes.html and gcc-4.3/changes.html in 
sync (or, actually, remove it from gcc-4.3/changes.html if we now already 
provide with GCC 4.2).  Would you mind doing this as part of the patch you
commit?

+    with several other compilers. Older versions of gfortran used by default
+    8-byte record markers (on most systems). In order to change length of
+    the record markers, e.g. to read unformatted files created by older
+    gfortran versions, 

I recommend something like "By default, older versions..." or "Older 
versions of gfortran used 8-byte record...by default".

"In order to change the length of".

Thanks,
Gerald
