[Gcl-devel] printing IEEE 754 special values (inf, nan)

I am using GCL 2.6.6 on linux. I find that GCL 
apparently can compute IEEE 754 special values, 
but then it complains when the number is to be printed
on the console.

E.g. (* 1e300 1e300) succeeds, so far as I can tell,
and yields IEEE 754 infinity. However, then there is
an error message about printing the result.

What needs to be modified in GCL in order to make 
floating point inf and nan (not a number) printable?

Thanks for any insights.
