newlib and TI Cxx (non-IEEE FP)

I am looking at building a toolset for the TI Cxx.  There is a 
patch for a partially complete port of newlib to this
architecture ( ) but the
Cxx does not have IEEE floating point.  

I recall some recent discussions on newlib and floating point but
I can't find them.  Is there any activity going on which might
be helpful for the Cxx?

Ran Cabell <> gives me the impression this
is a tough issue.  

And ... are there any tests for newlib to help verify correctness
after hacking on the math library? :)
