In my build of gcc 4.3.3 and also debian 4.3.2-1.1 (lenny), I see
the symbol __signbitl in libstdc++.so.6.0.10. We also have
In libstdc++.a, I see:
00000000 T __signbitl
In 4.3, we had the function signbitl.c in libmath. This was removed in 4.4.
Looking at the 4.3 implementation, I see that it assumes a 96-bit long double
format. This is wrong for hppa-linux, but I think the signbit extraction
works because of the alignment of the long double value in the union.
