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.

I have implementations of the complex arc-trig functions.  I have been
given some style changes.  But I would rather someone else take them
over and fix the style issues.  I think they are ready to be committed
even without the style fixes.  They are MUCH more accurate than the
corresponding Linux versions.

Also, I think someone has working versions of clog and clogl.

Let's light this candle, and get committing.
