I don't recall the details of this change anymore.

Here you say it: "application ... makefiles"

gcc-target-default.cfg is part of OAR's brain-dead application makefile
template system and meanwhile (for several years) is not used by the
source tree anymore. As I have said dozens of times before, if I was to
decide about it, the application makefile template system was abandoned
years ago.

gcc-target-default.cfg suffers from the same flaws as all other
application makefiles: RTEMS has no chance to know what application want
nor which variables they want to use, and therefore can't care about it.

I.e. if something inside of the makefile template system doesn't meet
your applications' demands, change/edit it to your demands.

So I guess, all the changelog entry above is referring to is
streamlining gcc-target-default.cfg to what the RTEMS makefiles use

Which README? Such a statement is wrong and would qualify as a
documentation bug.
