MAINT: special: Cephes cleanup #5111

Removed thousands of lines of code in Cephes: mostly tables of float constants that it provides in four variants, of which we only ever use one. Cephes is still a lot of code, but it's coming close to being actually readable.

MAINT: special: remove tables of hex and octal constants
We've been using the decimal float constants since
71e2f1b, and they've worked fine.
The only feature we lose is the ability to run on the VAX.

MAINT: special: remove unnecessary Cephes constants
I.e., the ones also offered by C89 or NumPy.
MAINT: special: remove Cephes polynomial routines
These routines were not reentrant, and NumPy has similar functionality
