Generally speaking, this means adding an extra element to the vector of

* to extend MULTILIB_OPTIONS and MULTILIB_DIRNAMES by one element,
* to extend MULTILIB_EXCEPTIONS to remove all those permutations of
flags you don't want.

It's basically the same as soft-floats are implemented in t-rtems (some
cpus have both soft-float/fpu variants, some cpus have fpu variants only
(imply hard-float), some variants have soft-float only (imply

Finally, for some reasons I never understood, powerpc-rtems-gcc has
-mno-eabi in its MULTILIB_EXTRA_OPTS, which I am not sure whether it
interferes with -mabi=*.
