The GCC package has a default conf option of disabling libquadmath and
the toolchain dependencies selectively enabled it if i386 / x64.


This patch fixes a build failure when (GCC + glibc) is being built for
the IBM Power8 arch and has libgfortran enabled + libquadmath disabled.
The libgfortran has a code condition for __float128 and includes the
quadmath headers. The bug occurs because Power8 has emulated
float128 support. The fix per GCC options is to also set
--disable-libquadmath-support which disables the
__float128/libquadmath support in gcc/fortran and in libgfortran [1].

Another option to fix the build failure was to enable libquadmath for
IBM Power8 (ISA 2.07), however this would be soft float based as the
ISA 3.0+ (Power9) first supports native float128 [2][3].
