I tried to configure with '-Xlinker -xlibmieee' added to LDFLAGS.  Failed 
miserably.  In fact, configure complained that my compiler couldn't create 
executables, told me to look at config.log for details then logged me out 
from the machine!  It would appear gcc *really* doesn't like that 
combination:
