I have a question concerning the use of the soft float library for floating point operations in a user level application.  

Is the soft float library automatically used for any floating point operation when the application is compiled using a buildroot that was compiled with ‘SOFT_FLOAT:=true’ in the top level Makefile without explicitly using the compiler flags –msoft-float and -lfloat? 

If the soft float library is not automatically used, what are the proper compiler flags needed to explicitly compile for and link to the soft float library?

Yes, it's used automatically if you built the compiler with "SOFT_FLOAT=true" turned on.
