gcc of sh4 is multiarch. This provide m4 and m4-nofpu.
We use only m4 to compile most packages.
However, m4-nofpu is necessary when we compile Linux kernel and u-boot.
It becomes multiarch to be able to hold it for these two packages.

Therefore, we need double time when we build only m4.
I thought that we did not have to test m4-nofpu with g++ and other tools,
because linux kernel and u-boot use only gcc.

I compile the package which only gcc revised to test m4-nofpu now at
local machine,
and I am confirming time necessary for a package.
