abs/fabs/labs not builtin in C++

Why are abs, labs and fabs not builtins in C++?  A comment in cp/decl.c
claims they don't work with libg++, but i could not find any problems
after enabling them, and libg++ is obsolete anyway.

	* call.c (build_over_call): Convert builtin abs, labs and fabs to
	tree-codes.

	* decl.c (init_decl_processing): Reenable abs, labs and fabs as
	builtins.
