yes.  the base type C floating point type used in libFLAC is
now 32-bit float.  so in C-land intermediate results tend to
be affected by that precision whereas in the assembly code,
we are free to stay in the 80-bit FPU stack as long as possible
to keep the accuracy up.  in some cases it will help the

but the resulting files in either case are valid.
