So, what do I need to do a release:

svn co ...
cd gcc4
<bump version number in riscpkg-versions, setup-gcc-params>
./create-gcckit -pkg

Anything else?  I don't need to do anything to the compiler build to enable
VFP?  It's purely a runtime flag for GCC?

Lee or Chris, would you mind adding the VFP libraries to create-riscpkg,
since you know what's necessary and I dont?

When we're ready, I'll try and make Jenkins generate the release file so we
have it properly scripted, which might take a little while (the current
server has HDD which makes builds slower than I might like).
