This is unrelated to your problem, but thanks for pointing it out (none of
my machines are this -current yet :). I'll fix this warning.

: Could someone tell me what the warning message means?
This means you're trying to write a value that's just a tad too small for
output (DBL_MIN is, of course, VERY small - try outputting DBL_MIN*10.0 and
you'll see it work).
: Does "-mieee" option not work for the egcs on NetBSD Alpha?
Actually, it's a no-op; the float format is already IEEE.
