These should be e_lgamma_r.c and e_lgammaf_r.c.
I've only done some limited testing, but the
patch following my sig seems to work.

Note the first part of the diff allows us to remove the
cast to float in e_lgamma_r.c, which minimizes the diff
between e_lgamma_r.c and e_lgammaf_r.c (and e_lgammal_r.c :).
