Misc README cleanups

......@@ -18,11 +18,11 @@ Building is done with ant, and requires the [ant-cpptasks][ant-cpptasks] library
Note that the `ant-contrib-cpptasks` package in Ubuntu is not installed to the right place, and ant will not be able to use it automatically. (To fix it, run `sudo ln -sf /usr/share/java/ant-contrib-cpptasks.jar /usr/share/ant/lib/.`)
Building also requires gcc >= 4.8, as this is the first version that adds support for the RTM instructions. It might be possible to use icc or others (feedback on this is appreciated).
There are two alternatives for building:
* ant's default targets need gcc >= 4.8, as this is the first version that has built-in support for RTM instructions.
* The oldgcc-* targets provide a fallback option for other compilers. See `ant -projecthelp` for more details.
As of this writing, there is no stable release of gcc 4.8 --- you will need to obtain or build your own.
I plan on providing binary packages of javartm soon. If they aren't up yet, feel free to mail me to ask for one.
