  It does, and we could use them, or we could adopt the mingw inline asms,
and drop newlib's version altogether.  I don't think I'm going to have any
time to put to this until saturday, but I think that I understand the source
of the problem: the representation of zero in FP is a special case, yet the
code treats it as if it had a valid mantissa and exponent.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
