powepc64 is about be a long-double-fcts=yes platform. I believe Dwayne
submitted the patches for the powerpc64 long double support last week.
This of course is dependent on a general solution to versioning the two
sizes of long double within glibc. Jakub has proposed a mechanism/patch to
do this but I believe this is still unresolved.
