On my IIci I do not see this problem, but that one is running etch-m68k
(since for some reason I can't seem to be able to boot 2.6 on that
machine, so sid is not an option for now).

That being said, when I look at the disassembled version of frexp in
libc 2.3.6 (the one in etch-m68k) and the same in libc 2.5, there are no
differences; so yes, this would sound like a bug in aranym.
