This is so odd, because when I tested on my tree (which couldn't have
been more than a week old), the fpu directory got picked up first when
configuring a traditional ppc build, and the soft-fp stuff only got
picked up with --without-fp or with the new
powerpc-unknown-linux-gnusoft triplet.

And yes, despite how odd it sounds, I did test on both fpu and
non-fpu, and I did verify what objects got built and what didn't.  I
even debugged the math libraries with gdb at the source level to make
sure the assembly wasn't odd.

Be that as it may... This just needs to be fixed.  I've updated my
tree only to notice that my patches have been removed, so I guess I'll
have to work from yesterday's tree.

BTW, I have an old ppclinux box.  Perhaps it's some weird interaction
with it.

More news later.
