   and host.  We need to do this so that we know what kind of conversions need
   to be done when converting target numbers to and from the hosts DOUBLEST

   necessarily any longer than `double'.  On SunOS/gcc, it's the same as
   double.)  This is necessary because GDB internally converts all floating
   point values to the widest type supported by the host.

   There are problems however, when the target `long double' is longer than the
   host's `long double'.  In general, we'll probably reduce the precision of
   any such values and print a warning.  */
