It's already required to build F95, and there's increased pressure to
import it into the GCC tree. So this may not be so far away as you think.

Mark froze the branch a couple hours ago, so we'll pretend you wrote 3.4.x
There are formatting and naming issues with the patch (stuff goes past 80
characters in several places, there look to be a couple of tabs embedded in
a few lines, and stuff in floatconv.cc is going to have to be uglified), but
those can be dealt with before checkin.

Is there no easier (yet safe) way to get log10 than by pulling in the entire
math header? (I don't know, it's an honest question.)

the same something.
