	Sorry to bother you.
	I'm working with making a arm-gcc cross complier,and my host machine
	is RedHat-Linux based on intel-586.

	While I'm compiling newlib-1.8.1,there's an error occured.

arm-semi-aout-gcc -g -O2  -O2 -DABORT_PROVIDED -DHAVE_GETTIMEOFDAY 
-DARM_RDP_MONITOR -fno-builtin -I/home/jwlin/gnu/newlib-1.8.1/arm-semi-aout/
newlib/./targ-include -I/home/jwlin/gnu/newlib-1.8.1/arm-semi-aout/newlib/
./libc/include -c dtoa.c
In file included from mprec.h:31,
                 from dtoa.c:33:
/usr/local/arm/lib/gcc-lib/arm-semi-aout/2.6.3/include/float.h:1: #error
/float.h values not known for cross-compiler

	And I can't find "float.h" anywhere in this library.
	It's seems that "float.h" is machine-dependent , right?
	Would you please tell me how to overcome this error or where 
	can I find a complete document? 
	Thank you for your help.
