Thanks for checking up on this, Tobias.

Pengfei, I think a portable way to define +/-INFINITY will be to use the
values 1.0D/0.0D or -1.0D/0.0D.

We might want to introduce some local defines for them.

I'm just checking that this definition works on AArch64 (it ought to as
it uses gcc) and will then resubmit to see if sparc also accepts it.
