Hmm. I'm sorry I've kind of dropped the ball on this, but I think your 
patches to the gcc subdir are valid too. I'm still waiting for 
clarification from Ulrich, but I think

long double l = 3.36210314311209350626e-4932L

style in float-i386.h seems correct. I too, do not understand what 
"hexadecimal floating point" means in relation to this file, but the c++ 
compiler definitely handles this kind of stuff. 

Since you seem to be on the ball WRT shadow headers, (and I don't want to 
deal with this stuff) can you please post 
a patch with Brent's bit and your bits at some point? (I understand if 
it's monday.)

Note that currently src/shadow and bld/cshadow headers are uninstalled. 
For the time being, we can probably just copy them to the 
header like the rest of the c++ headers, although I think making 
(prefix)/include/cshadow is probably a better solution.
