FC3 release notes -- nptl now on 486+

Please add a descriptive phrase to the summary, and more in-depth
description here (be sure to note any arch-specific issues):
The release notes currently contain:
(x86) Native POSIX Thread Library (NPTL) support is unavailable in
architectures below i686. This includes VIA, AMD K6, and i586 Pentium
processors. This is known to be problematic for certain applications
that rely on NPTL db4, such as subversion.
We now have support for nptl on 486+, making this paragraph unnecessary.
I haven't tested it since I don't have any machine like this, but this
is a warning only anyway.
Also applies to RHEL4. Since there we don't support anything below
i686 (or even higher) it's a non-issue.
Hold on to this while the details are checked...
OK, facts checked. If the i386 glibc RPM is installed we have NPTL
Super -- pulled the paragraph (and verified that rhel4 has no
corresponding entry, just to make sure)
