Maybe you have omitted information, which might explain why you
discarded some obvious possibilities, but here are some points:
newlib doesn't include full support for long double math, as you hinted.
You could supply your own asinl() (easy way: use the built in x87
If the function you want is in libstdc++, gcc doesn't see it, but g++
should see it.
You could fix the config.h manually, if, for example, you have a reason
for running it only under g++, but you want the result to be applicable
to gcc as well.
