I noticed you added a patch that allows "nan0x7fffffff" instead of "nan".  My 
reading of POSIX says this is illegal and that IRIX has a bug; if the n-char-
sequence form of NaN is used, it must be in the style "nan(0x7fffffff)", with 
the ( and ) as literal characters.  Compare the wording in C99 and POSIX for 
strtod() and nan().
