Indeed. We ought to extract all the NaN and Inf stuff into a separate file.

  What are needed for XPath are portable implementations of:
    - isnan()
    - isinf()
    - initialization routine to get a +INF a -INF and a NAN

all this according to the IEEE 754 standard and the available implementation
for the C double type.

I have attached two small patches for libxml. Unfortunately, I have not
tested them myself as I don't have access to the GNOME CVS from the Alpha
machine. Could somebody check them out, and report whether they work or not?
If possible, I would like to hear if they work with both GCC and the vendor

Okay I commited them, maybe we will get the answer at the next release :-\
