arm-riscos-gcc uses -fno-short-enums by default. I'd be surprised if it's
different for arm-linux-gnu-gcc, though; ARMv3 doesn't have any 16-bit and
signed-byte memory access instructions, ARMv4 and later do, and I'm not sure
about ARMv3T (probably does due to the Thumb extension). (It's also worth
mentioning that these extra instructions have a more restricted constant
offset range: ±255 rather than ±4095 bytes.)

FWIW, this Risc PC has a StrongARM but was designed for ARM610. It's
pointless even trying to attach a DVB device to it, though...

Standing on head makes smile of frown, but rest of face also upside down.
