A backport of the gcc-current changes make the perl 5.8.4 test suite
*very* happy, as well es fixing my test case and the new regression test.
Furthermore they avoid the stupid detour via 128bit (soft-)floats when casting
from double to integral types completely.
I'll commit them and request pullup to 2.0.
P.S.: the perl test suite now also passes the bignum tests! I can't remember
this working ever before.
