The posted regression test was done with the gcc toolset but on Mac OS X.
You can tell because the heading on the Pass/Fail column says GNU GCC
instead of darwin. The gcc toolset doesn't include the flag to disable the
long double warning.

I just ran the test regression tests and there were significantly fewer

I would be will to run regular regression tests if someone would explain
where I need to post the output.
