Fix the part of the float test that requires IEC559/IEEE754 compliance

GCC and CLang compilers fail to support full IEC559 compliance required for the test, when certain compiler flags are active. This patch implements a heuristic that checks for the most common flag in GCC and CLang, plues an extra check which GCC disables when it's not compliant, to hopefully catch most cases where it can't run.
