Hi Riccardo & Dalibor,

Yes. It's probably linked to my old patch which was removing everything 
in one of the config files of fdlibm except the autoconf macros. It was 
not advised to do so by Tom Tromey as some architectures have weird 
endianness combinations... so maybe we should have a better patch here.
