Comment(by charris):

 The algorithm (which is kind of a mess) assumes an exponent/mantissa
 format, while the PPC long double is implemented using two doubles. I'm
 not even sure if eps really makes sense for it. I'd almost be inclined to
 hard code these values except that they may depend on compiler flags.
