Just curious, what's the meaning of all those suffixes?
Older (v5) arm chips had different feature sets added - depending on
application/reuirements:
t = thumb (reduced size code/higher density)
e = eabi ( successor of "old" oabi)
l = little endian
j = jazelle (java speedup)
v = vfp (fp enging) and there's meantime vfp/vfpv3/vfpv3-d16/simd/neon ...
And there might be even others, but these are the common flags.

Hm. If x86 did it like that for all its flags, we'd have a mess. :)
