Upon rebuilding "security/sudo" with "CFLAGS+=-Wa,-msoft-float", the
resulting 'sudo' binary fails immediately with "Memory fault" and/or
"Segmentation fault".

I was in the process of rebuilding all packages with the above "soft-float"
workaround.  While essential for "cwrappers", it breaks "sudo".  Its
effect on other packages has not yet been investigated.

Since then I've excluded "security/sudo" from the "soft-float" workaround.
