Use of C99 extra long double math functions after r236148

One thing that could be done is to have a "math/cephes" port that adds
the extra C99 math functions. This is already done in the math/sage
port, using a rather clever patch due to Peter Jeremy, that applies to
the cephes code.
What it would do is to create a /usr/local/lib/libm.so that would
provide the extra functions not currently included in /lib/libm.so, and
then link in /lib/libm.so as well. It would also create its own
/usr/local/include/math.h and /usr/local/include/complex.h as well.
What do you guys think? Do you want someone to start experimenting with
this idea? I could do it, but probably not for a little while.
