	Would a good first step be to see if Bruce would be interested
	in updating his MKSOFTFLOAT changes to current and look at
	integrating them?

	Ideally the mechanism should be extendable to other architectures
	so if someone did the MD work they should be able to build an
	i386-nofp distribution :)
