Re: prob w/ RT

If I remember correctly, there was a way to determine the
type of hardware support on the RT via a system call.  If
you had an AFPA on an APC, you would receive an indication
that both the 68881 and the AFPA were available.  You should
be able to ignore the AFPA and just use the 68881.  You will
be throwing away a significant performance gain if you do this.
The AFPA is a completely different instruction set so you may
not want to support both.
