I think we need to make sure that the libgcc never contains softfloat.
The softfloat in our libc is better than libgcc's (for one, it supports
the basic FP exception stuff).
I remember doing this for the SH target in GCC 3.x, but we should
probably make a sweep through all of the GCC configurations.
