I'm using a MIPS variant without FP unit at work.  I use soft-float
for it.

I know how to build those missing soft-float functions (== I know
build infrastructure of libgcc and its glue in NetBSD) - but I'm not
very familar with floating point arithmetic itself.  I need help from
FP experts to finish my work:
