GCC Alpha IEEE patch

Here's a patch that makes IEEE compliant math operations (support for 
denormalization, nan, inf, etc) the default on the Alpha unless it is 
specifically turned off with -mno-ieee.

It arose out of a discusion on the Alpha port list about packages SIGFPEing on 
the Alpha (see the thread 'SIGFPE and -mieee').

Place the attached alpha-ieee.dpatch file in the debian/patches directory for 
gcc (unstable, version 3) add it to the debian/rules.patch file as follows:

ifeq ($(DEB_TARGET_ARCH),alpha)
  debian_patches += alpha-ieee

Later  -T
