I'd be somewhat gobsmacked, if that latter were the case.  I've just
done some Web-searching on "openssl fpu" and "gnutls fpu" and it sure
looks to me like they use common FPUs.  (This is not an area where I 
have any particular expertise, so my surmise based on a couple of
minutes of searching might be mistaken.)
