There are three problems:

1. The linking problem has been fixed in the latest version.
(Or did you have the latest version and just forgot to compile

2. A slightly different binary representation of long double than I had
expected. Is there any preprocessor symbol that I can use to detect
Alpha processors?

3. Your <limits> header is a bit funny.
numeric_limits<T>::quiet_NaN() returns a NaN with the signbit set.
This triggered the assertion.
(Does it matter? Maybe. According to C99, positive NaN should be
written to text files as "nan" or "+nan" and negative NaN as "-nan".
And this will probably be part of C++0x as well.)

Thank you,
Johan Råde
