I don't think this should be an issue unless you're lying to

1. If you have --build=powerpc-linux-musl and the gcc on your system
   is actually musl-targeted, it won't have decimal float (because
   it's presently impossible to build a gcc where that's working) and
   it should detect that and work.

2. If you have --build=powerpc-linux-gnu, then you're cross compiling
   and/or building across compiler, so xgcc or powerpc-linux-musl-gcc
   should be used in place of gcc to build target libs.

Only in the case where you told it build=musl but it's really
build=gnu should this break...
