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.
