  That would be difficult at least in the case of dx since it contains
numerous binaries (and libs) and I have no idea which gets the FPE.
But if you are willing to compile the whole package... I could give it

-mieee helps.

  What's wrong with it then? Alpha kernel too anxiously checking for
segmentation violations?

  Hope someone does... I really would not like to spend my time
digging through the source.
  Thanks for help - once again.
