Right.  I've always thought of them as the canonical options for gcc
as well.  I think the only reason internal compilers like cc1 have
-mel and -meb is because gcc's target options system has traditionally
required every target option to begin with "-m".  (That's no longer
a restriction in 4.1 FWIW.)

So contrary to what was said upthread, I've always treated
the omission of these options from invoke.texi as deliberate.
They're really internal compiler flags rather than user flags.
You should use -EL and -EB instead.
