It seems to me that it is required; otherwise I get a compile or 
link-time error (I can't remember which, probably link).  However, in the 
handbook that comes with 2.1.0 it says:

"npx0 is the interface to the math coprocessor . . . If you do not have a 
math coprocessor, you can comment this out."

That info in the handbook is incorrect.
