Certainly, for native x86-64, which is the only additional target we're contemplating at the moment, having 2 paragraphs (or small sections at the most) in the book surrounded in the relevant profiling syntax, doesn't seem too onerous to me.  Once in there, I doubt they'd need amending much - probably only if newer GCC versions change relevant portions of the specs file.

Well, if that's the preferred method, I'll give it a go. Let me see what 
I can do...
