What is FreeBSD lacking?  ("most completed" implies that something is
missing.) Would you please send a path to where they have it? (In a
quick look via the FreeBSD source web interface, it was not at all
obvious to me where the math library stuff is.)

looks on lib/msun
 generic one are in src.
Specific ones are the other directories

amd64  bsdsrc  ld128  mips     sparc64
arm    i387    ld80   powerpc  x86

On FreeBSD I have not yet fond a missing one, but I have not checked
all expected by POSIX.

NetBSD miss almost all the functions. Only
the rounding functions are implemented. For all the others
it is just

#define coshl _coshl
#define sinhl _sinhl
#define acosl _acosl
#define atanl _atanl

Assuming to merge the current and the FreeBSD, I think that
the implementation should be moved to files with a name scheme


Does make sense ?
I think that the file names should reflect the function names, and not
some legacy non-matching name that makes things more difficult to find
(which is a current nuisance in the present files).  So, no, not
sl_fabs.c, but fabsl.c.

then I will just leave

as found in FreeBSD

ls -1 src/*fabs*c
