[C2hs] On the disappearance of CLDouble

Manuel, other interested c2hs people,

GHC 6.12 removes the CLDouble type from the FFI libs. Of course this
means c2hs currently does not compile. The question is what level we
should handle this at. Do we also stop recognising and translating long
double in C code? Perhaps we should recognise it but fail with an error
message to the effect that there is no corresponding Haskell type.

Suggestions welcome.
