Hey, Dimitry, thanks for the rapid response!

Yes, I'm sorry I didn't make this clear. That is exactly what I did.  
The "old" tools were arm-elf, the new "xscale-elf" (the processor is a  
Marvell PXA320, an Xscale proc).

Still, the arm-elf floating point code ran very well on it, and I'd  
like to understand better how to get that same performance out of my  
xscale-elf tools.

You mean, rebuild my toolchain with --target=arm-elf, or can I pass -- 
target to GCC in my target code makefile?
