#518: GEOS 3.3.2 crashes on MinGW64

Comment(by esseffe):

 interesting to notice (and may be related to this ticket someway).
 the Windows own runtime (printf) represents NaN-values in a completely
 different way ("1.#QNAN", "-1.#INF") from the one adopted on linux
 please see: http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/3576

 that's not only: I noticed an odd inconsistency affecting some math
 C-APIs between 32 and 64 bit implementations on Win, e.g.:

 p = pow(0, -3.6)
 errno=34 [ERANGE, exactly as on Linux]
 fpclassify(p)=1280 [FP_INFINITE]

 p = pow(0, -3.6)
 errno=0 [no error !!!!!!]
 fpclassify(p)=1280 [FP_INFINITE]

 anyway fpclassify() isn't natively supported by the Windows own runtime;
 it looks much more consistent and robust relying on win-specific
 instead (and useful to support MSVC as well, not only MinGW).
