To both Mike and Yann, this goes to the issue I ran into with 
--with-long-double-128.  Mike, I am glad you can confirm that you don't 
need this.  Now, why did I?  Mike what version of glibc are you using?  
Maybe that is a factor.  I used glibc 2.9.

Mike, are you using crosstool-ng for s390/s390x or your own implementation?

I will make the other recommended changes and remove this.  If the 
problem with long-double-128 returns I will post the results for 

Thanks all,
