Configure: uselongdouble fallback does not work
Message ID:
The fallback if uselongdouble or usemorebits are defined but some
mathematic functions are missing does not work. This is because at
least the Gconvert macro is defined before to a value invalid for
uselongdouble=undef. I think it's best to just exit the Configure
process in such a case.
