It looks like fpsetmask() was deprecated since many years, and that fedisableexcept() is available since FreeBSD 5.3. Since we try to support FreeBSD 9, it's fine to drop support of FreeBSD < 5.3.

I'm concerned by the "CAVEATS" section below. Should we put "#pragma STDC FENV_ACCESS ON" in all .c file using a C double?

@skrah: I saw this pragma in Modules/_decimal/libmpdec/mpdecimal.c. Any idea if applying this patch is fine?

Maybe we can start by applying it to the default branch?

If this patch is required to support arm64, I think that it's ok to apply it to 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5 since we still accept changes to fix platform compatibility issues.
     The routines described herein are deprecated.  New code should use the functionality provided by fenv(3).
     The <fenv.h> header first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.  It supersedes the non-standard routines defined in <ieeefp.h> and documented in fpgetround(3).

     The FENV_ACCESS pragma can be enabled with
