Thanks!  That was what I was hoping.

I see that gcc-4.8.2 supports "--with-float=softfp".  I'm confused about what
to use for "--with-fpu", if anything.  My choices are:

		| vfp | vfp3 | vfpv3 \
		| vfpv3-fp16 | vfpv3-d16 | vfpv3-d16-fp16 | vfpv3xd \
		| vfpv3xd-fp16 | neon | neon-fp16 | vfpv4 | vfpv4-d16 \
		| fpv4-sp-d16 | neon-vfpv4 | fp-arm-v8 | neon-fp-armv8 \
                | crypto-neon-fp-armv8)

If I omit the "--with-fpu", will it just default to use soft float all the time?
