Upstream 2.6.x does not support the hard float ABI so unless you have a 
patched version (such as the one shipped in debian) it won't correctly 
link against C libraries on a system that uses hard float ABIS. Also 
even when the hard float ABI support is present in the compiler source 
code you need to either bootstrap with a starting compiler that uses the 
hard float ABI or explictly specify -d FPC_ARMHF during the build.
