[PATCH] libc: Replace i386/sys/fenv.h symlink with an #include shim

As in fbaa096772f77be664864d80508906ad018cc23b:

Having symlinks leads to issue unpacking the sources on platforms without proper
symlink support.  These platforms mostly extract symlinks from the archive file
as copies of the files the symlinks point to.  If the links appear in the tar
file before the source exists, it cannot copy the file.

The solution in this patch is to convert the files that are symbolic
links into simple files which include the file they were linked to.
This should be more portable and avoids the symbolic link problem.

Excuse my ignorance, but is this acceptable?  I'm not sure
what actually happens with these files, but it'd be nice to
get rid of the last symlink in the repo.
