Imho, all packages should be compiled with -mieee. This will break no
package that works on intel (since intel is ieee) and will only amount
for minor slowdown. This will make an overall stable system to start
off from and whichever package turns out to be too slow, must be
compiled for the specific submodel it will run on, anyway.
