I added the needed flag to the my local configuration just today. It's
-ieee and needed to enforce IEEE conforming math operations. It's never
been part of the basic toolset because usually the IEEE conformance of the
CPU itself is good enough, and using this flags may incur a significant
performance penalty. So I would recommend not to add it to the basic toolset.
Strictly speaking it should be there for all math relevant boost libraries
which depend on IEEE conforming math, but I always thoughr that anyone
using this libraries on Alpha CPUs will know about the pitfalls.
The tests passes locally with my current V2 toolset, and there will be a
fresh non-incremental regression run over the weekend, therefore it should
show up green soon.
