I could be mistaken, but I grabbed latest svn of avr-libc and I do
not see math library support for fixed point.  I wrote a patch
for this way back with the original fixed point support patches
and also string conversion routines.. maybe now its time to commit
this since fixed point is finally part of avr-gcc?
