The following code produce strange result:

#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
long double a = powl(-0.0397739, 310.954);
long double b = -5.12198e11;

printf("(%Lg)^(%Lg) = %Lg", a, b, powl(a, b));
return 0;
}

MinGW is v2.0.0 with runtime v2.4, gcc is v3.2.2(mingw
special 20030208-1).
