As an aside, I don't understand how the configuration is supposed to
work there: why do we define HAVE_LONGDOUBLE, etc... for a serie of
functions ? I don't understand why for example testing for expf is
supposed to be enough to guarantee the presence of the whole float
functions (HAVE_FLOAT_FUNCS). What is the rationale for that ? Why not
testing for every function we are using ?
