Here are two versions of Sun's fdlibm library that can be compiled on
an x86 PC computer. I do not know what would happen if one tries to
build the glibc version of fdlibm on a PC. The code that Sun made
public functions just with Sun's pre-ANSI compiler on a Sun sparcstation
and it has taken a lot of work by Drepper and others to produce versions
for different computers and compilers.
This fdlibm version is the one used by Cygwin for Microsoft Windows.
I was able to build it for a pc-linux box without much trouble.
This fdlibm was derived from the Newlib version, I believe.
It comes with Delorie's self-contained development system for MS-DOS.
I do not know how hard it would be to build it for linux. I do know
that it was subjected to some math tests several years ago.
