[Numpy-discussion] Slightly off-topic - accuracy of C exp function?

I'm exploring Mingw-w64 for numpy building, and I've found it gives a
slightly different answer for 'exp' than - say - gcc on OSX.
The difference is of the order of the eps value for the output number
(2 * eps for a result of ~2.0).
Is accuracy somewhere specified for C functions like exp? Or is
accuracy left as an implementation detail for the C library author?
