Actually, I think our GCC defaults to ARM6 codegen, and the ARM2 port 
simply agrees to trap and emulate instructions present on ARM6 but not 

But, to speak to your broader point, yah, I agree, it's an issue.  At 
Wasabi, we hand-wave this, because we ship different binary 
distributions for each specific target platform, and compile them with 
the appropriate compiler flags.
