And there are no "standard" interfaces for that? (I'm ignorant of deeper
floating point details).

One reason to use --disable-assembly is if the assembler invocations
don't work for some reason. So I think we really should avoid using
assembly source files. Resorting to gcc inline assembly (when using gcc)
might be a less bad alternative for the common case of gcc.
