I just did a quick test across all supported EPD platforms:
win-64: float96 No, float128 No
win-32: float96 No, float128 No
osx-64: float96 No, float128 Yes
osx-32: float96 No, float128 Yes
rh3-64: float96 No, float128 Yes
rh3-32: float96 Yes, float128 No
rh5-64: float96 No, float128 Yes
rh5-32: float96 Yes, float128 No
sol-64: float96 No, float128 Yes
sol-32: float96 Yes, float128 No

I have no explanation for this, but I'm guessing David C. has.
I'll look more into this tomorrow.
