Hello All,

	I was wondering a few things about MPC8xx FPU support. If
I build a kernel with fpu-emulation do I have to pass the CFLAGS
"-msoft-float -D_SOFT_FLOAT" when compiling glibc? Does it save me
any ram if I don't? I know if I don't my performance will drop but
our aplication doesn't use floating point except for ping mabey.

Thanks in advance,
