Still on target for imminent 1.7.8 release? [was Re: Enable dfp routines in compiler support lib]

[ First attempt to post to the main list was blocked because of a bad keyword
in the subject; trying again on the theory that the word "BID" might have been
what tripped the spamfilter. ]
[ Nope, that wasn't it.  Second try. ]

  We already have fenv.h in CVS, so it will be in 1.7.8 automatically.  That
means this isn't really a -devel thing, so redirecting:

  Hey, main list!  Are we still expecting 1.7.8 by the end of this month?
