Final patch.

Skip, could you please give this one a try, and then with any luck this 
can be fixed for 3.0.1.  (Sorry for creating more work;  this should be 
the last time.)

I've added a configure test that detects x87 FPU usage, via the double 
rounding issue associated with the x87.  If x87 is detected then 
_Py_force_double is used via a macro Py_FORCE_DOUBLE;  otherwise, 
Py_FORCE_DOUBLE does nothing.

When you configure on a machine that uses x87, you should see:

checking for x87-style double rounding... yes

in the configure output.
