Well, just read it:

It counts mips and mipsel seperate.
It also lists i386 and i386-hurd. 
What we don't have is s390 and hppa, but from, the top of my head, VAX and
pc532 come to mind. 

Now if we follow the i386-hurd example, we can add a couple of Linux
distribs what run Zoularis as well as Solaris (intel & sparc) of course.

Then, it's not clear from that list how many machines (platforms?) of the
given CPU architecture are supported. I guess we have >10 for m68k alone.
