 |  the FreeBSD sources for erfl and erfcl can be found here:
 Yes, but it is more complicated than that. It is not just erfl that
 needs the ld128/ld80 treatment... It is a good project for someone
 to do... To bring long double support to libm correctly. OpenBSD
 has done it, by copying the FreeBSD code and porting it. Our structs
 and defines are more similar to OpenBSD, so perhaps starting from there
 is going to be easier. I looked into it a bit, and it seems like a few
 days of work to get the first couple of platforms working, and a lot
 more to get the rest and the testing done.
