[Buildroot] problem with external toolchain with hard float

Hello All,

I'm trying to update a project to 2013.05. I have an external toolchain 
(build with ct-ng 1.18) for arm that is hard float.

The problem I have is that the elf files being built for the target do 
not run. This is because in each elf file the program interpreter is set 
as /lib/ld-linux.so.3 but if I look in the target filesystem that is 
generated it has /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3

So it seems like my toolchain is somehow building elf files that won't 
run with the toolchain which has me pretty confused. Do I just need  a 
suitable sym link in my target fs or is this something wrong with how 
things are being built. Could it be that the toolchain wrapper is 
somehow forcing soft float?
