Okay, I'll do that.

The last thing that comes to my mind is that BUILDING doesn't mention
"ports". It is unclear that -m can be set to a port name, like "-m hp700".
I found out my answer by using google.

Maybe the definition of MACHINE and/or -m can specifically mention the
term "port" or "ports" and also show some examples and also point to a
list of MACHINEs that are available.
