Some of you may remember the numerical stability issue
I've been struggling with 3 years ago:
That problem shows up again now that I added a testcase
for buffering operation taken from JTS repository:
The test succeeds on a 64bit system, fails on a 32bit one, adding
this other variable to the already complex situation.
Both me and Mateusz confirmed adding -ffloat-store to CFLAGS
fixed the run on 32bit system too, so I suggest we add
that flag by default, for improved numerical stability, when
available in the compiler.
Ok for everyone ?
