Hi Everyone,

In February, lots of people had code ready to commit for the C99 long double math.h functions.  This code is still not in and is an increasingly serious problem for a lot of software.  Two weeks from today, I will commit a patch that just calls the double versions of these for all of the long double functions.  If you have a better implementation of any of them, please commit it before then.  Style nits can be worked out later.  Small bugs in corner cases can also be fixed later: it is far worse for us to have no implementation of these than to have a slightly buggy one, because it just drives people to use platforms that have very buggy versions of them instead of FreeBSD.
