In the meantime, ld_sprint is now in D (dmd.root.longdouble), while strtold_dm
is still in C.

Why not just add strtold_dm.c to the LDC project? I'm not sure why it has to be translated to be D to be useful in LDC?

Just to be clear, LDC itself has no need for ld_sprint or strtold_dm. We let LLVM do the parsing and printing (in arbitrary precision).

DMD needs it for building with an LDC host compiler on Windows, as LDC uses a double-precision `real` on Windows/MSVC targets.
