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.
