This would actually be correct.  The proper meaning of say:

   Note 32 gprs are used


   Set the flag bit in the header of the generated file that indicates
   that this binary was compiled to only use the first 32 general purpose

This is a bit wordy for a usage message, so maybe we can agree on something 
shorter.  How about:

   Mark generated file as only using 32 GPRs.

Would this be easier to translate ?

Err, we are talking about the FRV processor here, not the PowerPC.

Some hardware implementations of the FRV core have 64 general purpose 
registers, others only have 32.  Hence the purpose of the flag bit is to let 
the program loaders on FRVs which only have 32 GPRs detect binaries which are 
unable to be run.
