The reference to MPC can't be correct.  This program does not use MPC.

it twice in the archives because it has the same message-id each time).  
I've seen this issue before with large messages coming to libc-alpha from 
IBM (many duplicate copies of them arrive on the list), as if there is

the message, or something like that.  Please try to get that mail system 
problem fixed.

A further refactoring will be needed for testing new types with existing

rather than being included when it is generated, so that the generated 
constants for binary128 can be used with either "L" or "f128" (well, "q" 
absent GCC support for "f128") suffixes depending on the type 
corresponding to that format.  Do you intend to do that in a separate
