Do the following steps:
1) Comment out the code inside resetfpu
2) Make cycle, and install the compiler.
3) Reinstate resetfpu.
4) Make cycle again.
5) Install.

You can shorten the time this takes by replacing step 2 with a
single make of the compiler and using this newly compiled compiler
to do the make cycle of step 4. It's what I did:

1) edit ../rtl/linux/syslinux.pp
2) make clean all
3) edit ../rtl/linux/syslinux.pp
4) make cycle PP=/home/michael/fpc/compiler/ppc386
5) su -c 'make install rtlinstall'
