-mno-short-load-words, -fvtable-gc, and -finit-priority will be removed
everywhere at the same time as I centralise warning flags.

I'm loathe to change any other flags without being able to test on the
specific targets in question.

I will mention though that the aeb isn't supported with the new tools as it
is arm7di. After this amount of time there really didn't seem worth the
large amount of space having a multilib for it. Everything has multipliers
now. There's also no separate strongarm multilib any more. I believe this
just makes things suboptimal, rather than stopping things working. At
worst, there's the existing tools.
