This is another issue I lost track of.  Is "float _Complex" more commonly
accepted than "_Complex float"?  These tests are for functionality, not
syntax, so they can use whatever is most common, or else use a macro that
can be replaced for other compilers.

I'm also planning to fix the complex constant values used in these tests
so they don't use the Fortran syntax which is a comma expression in C.
