Because the traditional file used to replace strtod uses it.

Thanks for the report.  We are not checking whether things are added
in the env, it's a corollary of our testing that macros don't pollute
the user name space, i.e., use only sh var starting with `ac_'.  There
are exceptions, you caught one, thanks!
