Array#pack should not test (or relax the expected value for) packing a NaN value #110

As discussed on, the value returned by [0.0/0.0].pack("g") and the like is indeterminate. We should either get rid of the existing specs, or relax the expected values so that either of the two possible NaN's (as defined in IEEE 754) can be returned.

MRI tests check only that Array#pack and String#unpack make a correct round trip.
