bsd only seem to have significand and significandf
so no ld version

actually the same is true for scalb
(musl declares scalbl but only defines
scalb and scalbf, so i guess scalbl can
be reomved from math.h)

freebsd just returns scalbn(x, -ilogb(x))
we can do that as well
(eventhough it's not very efficient for normal values)

(the i386 asm version uses fxtract which does the same)
