Silly me...what was I thinking?

I did a fairly exhaustive search for the sincos() error code I was
getting and that link did not turn up for me at all.
Instead I found a reference that seemed to imply that such a macro
should be implemented but it was not implemented
in GCC-4.8.0.

Then again, the link you found doesn't seem to indicate which version
of GCC has this feature...maybe it is versions
later than 4.8.0...

Sounds good...I'll try it if bootstrapping 4.9.0 goes south.
