1.  Using the same Configure arguments, I was not able to reproduce your 
problem in blead.

2.  I checked out v5.21.9.  Using these arguments:

git clean -dfx && sh ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dusethreads 
-Duse64bitint -Duse64bitall -Dusequadmath && make -j8

... I was able to reproduce your failure.

3.  Again using v5.21.9, I removed '-Dusequadmath' from the above 
arguments.  I built successfully.

4.  Again using v5.21.9, I used: '-des -Dusedevel -Dusequadmath', I 
built successfully (though possibly with more error warnings).

So I infer that there is something about 'usequadmath's interactions 
with other options that is the problem.

Thank you very much.
