KRoC thinks it's a Transputer, so it expects its target machine to
support IEEE floating point.  There may be some small discrepancies
on the PC -- we haven't quite sorted out floating point there.

There is also an endian problem with REAL64s -- big-endian machines
must either swap words for every REAL64 load and store, which may
be horribly inefficient, or use native format, which affect RETYPES.
