why would you want to remove a feature that is implemented in libc
anyway? All you'd gain is one nice feature less.
Actually I don't understand at all why you are dealing with this
code. It seems unrelated to 16-bit or floating point support. If you
ask me, stop fiddling with this stone-old code base and try to help
building a gimp core that fits the needs of film-editing.
