The problem isn't with the math libraries. There's nothing wrong with 
the way the engine deals with math at that level, and I wouldn't expect 
SQLite to use anything other than the standard math libraries.

The problem I've run into is more at a higher level, dealing with number 
parsing and runtime overflow detection before truncating input 
parameters down to unsigned integers and calling the math library.
