Re: math/fftw-long / math/fftw-quad broken on Linux as it pulls in math/libquadmath, which is superfluous and broken on Linux

This should be fixed.

Please understand I am trying to reduce friction by following other
package managers.

You're asking that we break the package for users of pkgsrc gcc...

I realize you don't care about providing working binary packages
to end-users, but it's very important for my primary mission of
