--with-float=soft in gcc ./configure simply puts -msoft-float into the
CFLAGS for all stages necessary ( i think ).

No.  The patch I linked in actually puts the soft float functions into
libgcc, so whenever -lgcc is called it will get automagically -mfloat=soft
without you forcing it.  (again I think)
