+    The <code>-mfpu</code> option now takes a new option setting of
+    <code>-mfpu=auto</code>.  When set to this the floating-point and SIMD
+    settings are derived from the settings of the <code>-mcpu</code>
+    or <code>-march</code> options.  The internal CPU configurations have been
+    updated with information about the permitted floating-point configurations
+    supported.  See the user guide for further information about the extended
+    option syntax for controlling architectural extensions via the
+    <code>-march</code> option.  <code>-mfpu=auto</code> is now the default
+    setting unless the compiler has been configured with an explicit
+    <code>--with-fpu</code> option.
