Here's the fix that adds support for VAX NaN (and works around
PR104865 which I discovered while trying to make this work).

Tested x86_64-linux, and slightly tested on vax-dec-netbsdelf again.

Pushed to trunk.

    libstdc++: Fix std::strong_order to handle NaN on VAX
    
    I mistakenly believed that VAX floats do not support NaN, but with GCC
    __builtin_isnan(__builtin_nan("")) is true. That means my previous
    change to <compare> is wrong, because it fails to handle NaN.
    
    When std::numeric_limits<floating-point-type>::is_iec559 is false, as on
    VAX, the standard only requires an ordering that is consistent with the
    ordering observed by comparison operators. With this change the ordering
    is -NaN < numbers < +NaN, and there is no support for different NaN bit
    patterns (as I'm not even sure if GCC supports any for VAX).
    
    libstdc++-v3/ChangeLog:
    
            * libsupc++/compare (_Strong_order::_S_fp_cmp) [__vax__]:
            Handle NaN.
