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.

Unfortunately, life gets in the way of hacking on FreeBSD.  However,
it so happens that I'll be sending a patch to das@ in early June
with an expl() update and an implementation for expm1l().
