Yes, it does indeed use vfp. All of the files in my tarball were compiled using
"-mfpu=vfp -mfloat-abi=softfp" (though obviously tremor doesn't need it).

I read somewhere that disabling gstreamer debugging information is supposed to
save some CPU cycles for the plugins. As I didn't disable debug information, and
assuming it's true, they may be made a little faster.
