This is precisely the reason why I want access to an unstable alpha
chroot! According to octave's build log, the mieee option is added to
XTRA_CFLAGS and XTRA_CXXFLAGS, but we need to know whether it ends up in
CPPFLAGS. And asking people, wait for their answer and then ask other
questions simply isn't productive.
