OK, I left it alone then.

Done. I have enabled dynamic rounding for both cxx and g++ on Tru64 and
added the check to the header file for cxx. As g++ doesn't define a macro
for the rounding mode, this check cannot be done for g++, AFAICT.

No problem. I just wanted to ask before I go and make changes to your
library. Now let's see what failures remain, maybe I'll find a fix for them.

You're welcome.
