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.
