[mythtv] Documentation update: compiling instructions

Is this the appropriate forum to voice a suggestion for a documentation 

"Section 5.1: Notes on compiling on a system with non-Intel processors" 
talks about changing -march=pentiumpro to -march=i586 for certain 
non-Intel processors and concludes with "Recent AMD processors, like the 
Duron, Thunderbird and Athlon don't need this change."  If my experience 
is any indication, this section may be due for a small update.  On my 
Fedora Core 2-based Athlon 64 system, the only way I could get MythTV 
0.15.1 to compile was by removing '-march=pentiumpro' and adding 
'-m64'.  I assume, but cannot verify that the same change would be 
necessary for an AMD Opteron since it is also a 64-bit native AMD processor.

If this is not the appropriate forum in which to make this request, 
please let me know what is.

Many thanks,

- Cedric
