| glibc doesn't work on any non-IEEE platform. What is it you're driving at?
Define numeric_limits<> as required by the standard.
C++ relies on LIA-1 which goes beyond IEEE-754.

I used to contribute V3 codes using in part non glibc systems and in
part glibc systems. If I can't build on non-glibc systems then I
can't contribute to libstdc++ as I could. Are you implying that my
contributions aren't important?
