any effect on --fast-math?

From my tests, -ffast-math affects only targets with a 68881 or compatible (like our -m68020-60). GCC has support for that, it knows which math functions are directly implemented in the FPU. When a program uses sqrt(), GCC simply generates the equivalent FPU instruction instead of calling the function from libm.
