$ grep "define.*LDOUBLE_SIZE" *-gen.c
arm-gen.c:#define LDOUBLE_SIZE  8
arm-gen.c:#define LDOUBLE_SIZE  8
c67-gen.c:#define LDOUBLE_SIZE  12
i386-gen.c:#define LDOUBLE_SIZE  12
il-gen.c:#define LDOUBLE_SIZE  8
x86_64-gen.c:#define LDOUBLE_SIZE  16

So no matter what, tcc will never give you more than 2 bytes for a long
