Hi Niklas,

Using a union instead of the pointer arithmetic fixes strtod for me.
Thanks very very much for the tip.

Do you know if it's safe to enable Haifa with egcs on mips now?
Trouble with strtod (which looks like the same bug) was the only thing
I'd found where Haifa broke the snapshot in the netbsd tree as of
early November (ie, whatever it was before we upgraded to 1.1.1).
