Any configure script that infers the ABI from the target triplet is
fundamentally broken. It is wrong to assume that arm-eabi is soft-float
and arm-hf-eabi uses the VFP ABI. We may decide to make this assumption hold
within Debian (thought even that is somewhat questionable if you consider
multiarch systems), but is definitely not true outside those constraints
