BTW I was under the impression the ABI information for hard vs softfp 
simply DOES NOT EXIST in the ELF headers (or anywhere else for that 
matter). If 
http://wiki.debian.org/ArmHardFloatPort/VfpComparison#ld.so_hwcaps is 
wrong (or I'm misreading it) and you know of a way to detect it 
afterall, do let me know.
