For completeness sake I wanted to follow up my own question, now that I
found the solution.

It appears that the CT_CC_CORE_EXTRA_CONFIG and CT_CC_EXTRA_CONFIG
options also need to include --with-float=softfp, so they now look like
this:

CT_CC_CORE_EXTRA_CONFIG="--with-fpu=neon --with-float=softfp"
CT_CC_EXTRA_CONFIG="--with-fpu=neon --with-float=softfp"

For details on where I found the solution (from Linaro and Ubuntu
notes), see my blog entry:

Hope that helps anyone else who runs into the same issue.
