#1.  --enable-multiprocessing is spelled incorrectly. :)

#2.  RTEMS multiprocessing requires some BSP specific drivers to enable
communications between the processors.  This has never been implemented
for SMP-PCs.  

But the tests should build but (I think) fail to link if you spelled
the option right.
