Something is definitively strange here (as Joerg noted). We use 128 bit
long doubles via softfloat on sparc64. We should actually offer the
hardfloat version too and fix all fallout from the emulator (if there
are any left), but last tests showed this to be slower.

What amd64 cpus support it in hardware (or which of the strange feature
bit acronyms matches it)? Of course we can not make the library features
depend on runtime cpu support detection.
