That's what's mostly been tested and works as you found out.

Last time I tried compiling with -Cfvfpv2 or 3 the compiler did not
cycle, so I could not test further. Has been some time, and this was
I think -mfloat-abi does nothing, but maybe that changed recently -
there have been many, many changes to the ARM support recently. Further
I am actually surprised that there is hardfp support for fpc. If so, it
is probably in a somewhat experimental state too.
Note that the second android fp ABI is still softfloat, although you can
use the vfp registers. I.e. -Cvfpv3(d16) is the only switch you can use,
in conjunction with -Cfsoft. (and add -Cparmv7).
Note that the other android fp ABI is still softfloat, although you can
use the vfp registers. I.e. -Cvfpv3(d16) is the only switch you should
use as fp related options.

At least after removing -mfloat-abi=hard it compiles through here.
(make clean crosszipinstall OS_TARGET=android CPU_TARGET=arm
CROSSOPT="-Cfvfpv3 -mfloat-abi=soft -Cparmv7" FPC=i386-linux-ppc386
There is another recent compiler switch to pass options to the assembler
(you want "-march=armv7a" to avoid some warnings) to the assembler, but
atm I do not remember. Maybe somebody else can help?
Note that the targetandroid branch may not support these options yet. I
will merge from trunk again soon'ish.
