And hi, to you two too.

I had the same problem, and, FWIW, if you want to get it going:

From 1.6ZF (20031115) made softfloat work ok.

It's been running since about 22 Nov 2003 w/softloat ok on
MPC823. Other problems, but softfloat seems ok.

Also, softfloat userland with gcc 2.95.3 didn't work for me.
