Ok. I checked in the routines into the libc areas.
If you want to play with perl, compile and install a new libc (which will
then have the proper _Qp* symbols in it). I compiled perl against that
(and left the --whole-archive stuff in for now) and it passed the entire
perl test suite except for 4 tests which weren't floating point related.
