Re: [fortran,patch] Patch for PR 14394 - Precision of real type.

Thanks to Tianjiao and Steve.

To sum up,
-255.998704134517: NAG(gcc BE), gcc, pgf90 -r8 and f77 WorkShop Compilers 4.2
on SunOS.
-255.995833263172: pgf90 (without -r8), ifort (Intel's) and orf90 (Sgi's, I
tested later)

Hard to judge. As Tianjiao said, if we use gcc to check the accuracy, the patch
is acceptable. At least, I think the difference is caused by backend, the patch
fixed gfortran's frontend.
