Ah - Hah!  I looked at 'info gcc', not 'info gcc-3.4' or 'man gcc-3.4'.

Here's the bug.  It does not tell me, explicitly enough, whether or not
-m64 implies -march=k8 or not.  It seems to, but I'm not sure, since
perhaps -march=k8 could be incompatible with the em64t.  I think that
the documentation should be a little more clear here.
