It is not a compilation error but likely a mismatch in compiler
flags between the way RTEMS was built (assuming no FPU and
only soft-float) and the way your application code was built
(assuming an FPU).

RTEMS was told there is no FPU and thus the FPU enable bit
will never be set.

FWIW you never said whether you got the tools from Aeroflex
Gaisler (RCC) or not. They tend to build with soft-float as
I recall.
