Aaaah. Now I'm going to guess that -mieee doesn't create a link
incompatibility with non-mieee. So only runtime libraries which have FP
math in them actually care.
Which is probably every one, but still, that's making me thank
that setting -miee in each library which wants it is the 'correct'
Correct me if I'm wrong. And thanks for the feedback.
