Dear Community 

i have a question about arm hard float point option 

we need arm float point option on LTIB tool chain 

i write some example code and compile with  LTIB , yocto 

binary that compiled with LTIB has no FLAGS (  hard-float ABI

binary that compiled with yocto  has a  hard-float ABI FLAGS

LTIB latest toolchain ( 20130816 version )

how can i support hard-float ABI in LTIB crosstool chain ?

please guide me 

Thanks BR
