Borland eh?

Math_info relies on numeric_limits to return the correct answers to it's
queries: with Borland it reports that it *does* have a quiet NaN, but as
soon as you *call* numeric_limits<>::quiet_NaN() the program aborts with an
unhandled hardware exception! :-(

Maybe we should add some #ifdef's in there so the program does at least run
to completion?
