Looks like the changes have been committed.  I've tested a couple
of environments so far:

PostgreSQL 8.2.4, FreeBSD 6.2, x86 32-bit
PostgreSQL 8.3devel, Solaris 9, sparc 32-bit

Both builds were successful.  Some of the sql-mm regression tests
failed but the failures appear to be due to tiny floating-point
differences (e.g., -0.0761204674887132 vs -0.0761204674887133).

When I get a chance I'll submit a regression test for the
Contains()/Within() bug that still exists:
