My question is: what do the relevant standards say about this? Is it required to SIGFPE? If it's required, I'll file a PR against port-powerpc and mark the tests expected-fail on ppc. If not, then I'll skip them on ppc. I dimly recall that it's required to be able to set this mode, but that it doesn't have to be the default. I think this is controlled by IEEE754, but note that vax is different. See fpgetmask(3). Maybe the test should set FP_X_DZ. Regardless of standards, it's probably good for NetBSD to be consistent across ports on default fp behavior.
