h.m.brHmmm, c128 *must* be before c. Now submitted the good patch:

Yes, c128 must be before c in libswanted.  I see you went through
just about the exact same sequence of steps I did.  Sorry I
couldn't have saved you more time...but it was a good learning
experience, right? :-)


I have a question about lddlflags though.  Shouldn't that also have a
-lc128 inserted before -lc?  What exactly is lddlflags used for anyway?
Building add-on modules perhaps?[ I saw no specific file for longdouble testing. Which is to check? ]

Yeah, it would be good if there were some checks for long double expected
output from certain well-chosen floating point operations...
