This may be necessary.

When gccxml builds its builtin GCC parser gets configured as a compiler
targeting the host platform.  Look at


to see how each target treats __float128.  Note that x86_64 targets will
use the i386.c source (ia64 is for Itanium).  That source contains the
condition "if (TARGET_64BIT)" around its support for __float128.
