update libm for improved C99 compatibility
Based on various research into C99 & various libm implementations,
it seems that the dragonfly libm is missing a few functions available
elsewhere, including but not limited to:
- trunc, truncf
- nan, nanf, nanl
- log2 log2f
Discussion started based on missing trunc() function,
noted to be in C99 section 220.127.116.11:
"The trunc functions round their argument to the integer value, in
floating format, nearest to but no larger in magnitude than the argument."
The functions listed above were added to NetBSD's library
since the DragonFly copy was merged, as of the versions
(available, $NetBSD$ v1.8)
although based on a quick glance at:
(available, $NetBSD$ v1.11)
(available, $NetBSD$ v1.2)
(not-available, /* @(#)fdlibm.h 1.5 04/04/22 */ )
(available, $FreeBSD$ v1.1)
It looks like trunc() was a fresh implementeation for FBSD 5 using
a similar structure (and misnamed header) from the s_floor.c
which was subsequently brought in to netbsd since 3.x release
According to Matt, Gnu seems to have a clean 4-line
implementation done in 2005:
Ideally the 'fix' would implement most or all of C99's math
functions, perhaps more realistically implementing a subset and
documenting the current level of coverage

I'm not saying that we are C99 compliant in libm, but we're at least up-to-
date with NetBSD.

:Good stuff - I hadn't got around to another audio-apps build attempt, so
:it hadn't bugged me again yet :)
:Perhaps now some more things will build ..
A lot of the work on the code base winds up being 'maintainance' like
this. It does make our jobs a lot easier down the road when we decide
to take that final step to actual conformance.
It's also a good way to break up a large coding job into smaller more
easily handled pieces. Once you get rid of all the easy-to-do
low-hanging fruit the hard bits will seem less hard.
