If the instruction is available on your platform but not in your
toolchain we can do something ugly (as we hav in the past) and replace
"mfdrcx" with ".long xxxx".  That will bypass the compiler breakage.

Can you either propvide the config file or the name of the config target
so I look into why it's enabling the currituck platform.
