I have no comments on fpgetprec() and fpsetprec(), but I don't think
it is the correct way to remove the FP failures in the gcc testsuite...

It is IMHO much better to make gcc understand that NetBSD defaults to
double-precision (which is what I believe RTH's old
ieee_extended_intel_96_round_53_format patch to gcc/real.[ch] does.
See Loren's updated patch, sent to gcc-patches last week...)
