I did some experimentations, and it turned out that two different solutions
were needed on Alpha, depending on your compiler.

 o with GCC the workaround is to ignore SIGFPE.

Umm... Alpha does not have IEEE floating point unless you specify -ieee -
otherwise, the floating point that you do get is not even *close* to what
is ieee. In case of dec c, there is no point in even discussing support
for non -ieee mode. 

GCC is another kettle of fish, but having to do without SIGFPE doesn't
sound all that nice...
