I'd say don't worry about it for now, stuff it in anyway (not the 1.1
branch for sure, which I forgot to mention; 1.1's test suite is frozen),
and we'll worry later about it.

In particular, -mieee should be one of the options that gets exercised
for *all* tests on Alphas, at least for the g77 tests (but why stop
there?!).  The commentary already mentions it, so that's taken care
of.  And if we have to simply stuff a .x file in for it someday to
just take care of that case, we can do that, but I'd rather get the
test in to the mainline (just so I can stop worrying about it) and
deal with -mieee later.

Maybe LAPACK needs the larger range, smaller numbers, and such; even
if it doesn't, -mieee surely should do nothing worse to any code
than to slow it down.  Crashing isn't nice; especially on a three-line
test case.  :)
