in thread powerpc double-double arithmetic

The basics of its arithmetic is here.
There's no 128 bit FP math with its gcc-4.6.3 compiler. I think the double-double technique precludes it. (Every other gcc-4.6.3 that I've seen has a quadmath.h that provides the __float128 type, but not this one - which is provided by Debian specifically for the PowerPC architecture.)

Cheers,
Rob
