Nearly all of the PowerPC do have floating point, only a few do not.
It's highly unlikely to find a PowerPC tool set that was custom
built to not enable floating point.  Don't forget that the compiler
flags are only a small part of the picture, you need matching
compiler run time support and application libraries as well.
Just using the compiler flags and not selecting the proper
libraries will not be a positive experience.
