In case it isn't clear: NAN and +/- infinity only make sense if you are
using IEEE754 floating point format - which vax just does not do.

Ifdef out all code referencing those statics, the code paths will never
be used on vax. See src/gnu/dist/gcc4/gcc/libgcc2.c for examples
(especially the define for INFINITY and ifdefs using it).
