g77 regression fix patch for 1.1 branch

Jeff, could you install this in the 1.1 branch?  More info is in
the news.texi patchlet.

Note that this is a minimal version of Toon Moene's recent patch.
Looking at the code his patch changes, I see even more fixups that
are probably worthwhile for the mainline.  I've lost track of whether
his patch was applied to the mainline -- I'd rather it not be, since,
although it produces a more "elegant" libg2c, it does so by being
"more different" than netlib's libf2c than necessary.  And the fact
that g77's libg2c is already different has caused bugs like the one
being fixed here.

So, I'm going to try to make some time in the next few months to
better reconcile libf2c and libg2c, by sending pertinent patches
(and some test cases, e.g. for complex-operation overlap bugs I
think libf2c has that libg2c doesn't) to dmg, etc.  (dmg is the
maintainer of netlib libf2c.)

        tq vm, (burley)

P.S. I've looked at the change to libf2c that triggered this bug
(which happened on the g77, not netlib, side, which is why this
is a regression, not a longstanding bug).  I can't figure out why
e_wdfe was moved from dfe.c to sfe.c either.  I'm going to ask
dmg about this.  (Of course, if he moves it back, we'd better do
a better jobbing of moving *our* modified version over than before. :)
