If I recall correctly, what you're seeing there is a local (NetBSD)
modification to allow our version of gas to handle double precision real
constants.  I'm not sure if anybody has resolved this satisfactorily for
a cross-compile environment, but I'm cross-posting to port-m68k to see if
someone can help.


PS - This is one of the things the m68k ports need to do something about
before we move them to, by the way...
