A few small suggestions:

> +	--->	gcc_ext		% gcc extensions see grade_component_table

s/extensions see/extensions -- see/

> +	;	par		% parallelism / MT


> +	;	pic		% Do we need to reserve a register for PIC?

s/PIC/PIC (position independent code)/

> +The @var{grade} should be a @samp{.} separated list of the
> +grade options to set. The grade options may be given in any order.
> +The available options each belong to a set of mutually
> +exclusive alternatives governing a single aspect of the compilation model.
> +The set of aspects and their alternatives are:
> + at table @asis

> + at samp{none}, @samp{reg}, @samp{jump}, @samp{asm_jump},

Since they're suppsed to be `.'-separated, shouldn't you omit the `.'
at the start of the names here?

> + at item What kind of profiling to use:

`.proftime' and `.profcalls' should be commented out here
(this is a bug in the existing documentation that I happened
to notice while reviewing your changes).

> + at item What debuging features to enable:
> + at samp{.debug} (the default is no debuging features).


Otherwise that looks fine.
