You could try to build the paranoia test in the sample applications.
If it also fails then your kernel configuration must be wrong somehow...

I understand that RTEMS is built with -msoft-float, and I followed steps on the RTEMS wiki to try to build my project with hardware FPU support.  The results of floating point calculations are coming out incorrectly-- i.e. 10000 * .9999 = X*10^-23.

I rebuilt RTEMS 4.8.0 after commenting out the lines indicated, setting SPARC_HAS_FPU to 1.  I replaced the "-msoft-float" line with "-mhard-float" in my leon2/3.cfg files (and see it in the build line).
