  Changed paths:
    M t/op/sprintf2.t

  Log Message:
  -----------
  skip the failing hexfloat test if it fails on NetBSD

perl (in theory) supports C89, where expl() doesn't exist (though
long doubles do), so our tests shouldn't fail if expl() isn't
available.

Of course, the NetBSD libm does supply an implementation of expl(),
it's just not a long double implementation.
