The 387 is hit with an FNINIT the first time you access it.  It does
not trap on "normal" exceptions - underflow, overflow, denormals,
precision, etc.  It does trap on invalid operation and stack
over/underflow.  You can reprogram it with standard 387 instructions
if you like, but beware.

Note that I don't think go32 itself uses floats except maybe in a few
printfs.
