It does, but it is not totally correct in all places (due to gcc issues
some parts have not received good testing, and others clearly are broken,
eg. when tables are used that have not been adjusted for the different
limits in VAX float/double formats).

Should be a lot easier to fix with newer gcc soonish (I hope).
