Okay, I have made the following changes and again, the tests pass for roundeven.

void
real_roundeven (REAL_VALUE_TYPE *r, format_helper fmt,
        const REAL_VALUE_TYPE *x)
{
  if (is_halfway_below (x))
  {
    /* Special case as -0.5 rounds to -0.0 and
       similarly +0.5 rounds to +0.0.  */
    if (REAL_EXP (x) == 0)
    {
      *r = *x;
      clear_significand_below (r, SIGNIFICAND_BITS);
    }
    else
    {
      do_add (r, x, &dconsthalf, x->sign);
      if (!is_even (r))
        do_add (r, r, &dconstm1, x->sign);
    }
    if (fmt)
      real_convert (r, fmt, r);
  }
  else
    real_round (r, fmt, x);
}

Tests :

/* { dg-do link } */

extern int link_error (int);

#define TEST(FN, VALUE, RESULT) \
  if (__builtin_##FN (VALUE) != RESULT) link_error (__LINE__);

int
main (void)
{
  TEST(roundeven,  0, 0);
  TEST(roundeven,  0.5, 0);
  TEST(roundeven,  -0.5, 0);
  TEST(roundeven,  6, 6);
  TEST(roundeven,  -8, -8);
  TEST(roundeven,  2.5, 2);
  TEST(roundeven,  3.5, 4);
  TEST(roundeven,  -1.5, -2);
  TEST(roundeven,  3.499, 3);
  TEST(roundeven,  3.501, 4);

  if (__builtin_copysign (1, __builtin_roundeven (-0.5)) != -1)
    link_error (__LINE__);
  if (__builtin_copysign (1, __builtin_roundeven (-0.0)) != -1)
    link_error (__LINE__);
  if (__builtin_copysign (-1, __builtin_roundeven (0.5)) != 1)
    link_error (__LINE__);
  if (__builtin_copysign (-1, __builtin_roundeven (0.0)) != 1)
    link_error (__LINE__);
  if (__builtin_copysign (1, __builtin_roundeven (-0.25)) != -1)
    link_error (__LINE__);
  if (__builtin_copysign (-1, __builtin_roundeven (0.25)) != 1)
    link_error (__LINE__);
  return 0;
}

Thanks,
Tejas
