long double problem

when configuring glibc-2.3.4 i get this message:
"checking size of long double... configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (long double), 77"

I don't get it... what's wrong? isn't size of long double static... or something?

Open the file 'glibc-build/config.log' and you should see more detail about the error. It would be helpful if you could paste that file somewhere and link to it here.
