According to Corinna Vinschen on 7/26/2007 6:19 AM:
> Long double functions are not supported by newlib so far.  There are a
> couple of C99 functions not available in newlib.  Volunteers implementing
> these functions in a license compatible way (BSD, not GPL) in newlib
> are always welcome.

Also note that until frexpl is implemented, you can make printf in a CVS
snapshot of cygwin go into an infloop or coredump with certain long double
values.
