math-emu on buildd machine?

Is the math-emu module loaded (or compiled in the kernel) on the buildd alpha machines? The gnu-smalltalk package is failing for 3.0 because the emulator converts erroneously a denormal float to double:

st> p:= (FloatE coerce: 1) timesTwoPower: -149.

(2^-149 is actually ~1e-44) despite the program is compiled with -mieee.

If it is, it is a bug in the emulator and the best solution is to XFAIL the test on alpha. But if it is not loaded, maybe it should...
