 tcl-7.0 on aix 3.2.4, make test reports error in format.test

Hi!

It seems printf in AIX 3.2.4 is a bit broken, here the output of
make test for tcl-7.0 on an AIX 3.2.4 system:

==== format-3.7 e and f formats
==== Contents of test case:

    format "%.4f %.4f %.4f %.4f %.4f" 34.2e12 68.514 -.125 -16000. .000053

==== Result was:
34200000000000.0000 68.5140 -0.1250 -16000.0000 0.0000
---- Result should have been:
34200000000000.0000 68.5140 -0.1250 -16000.0000 0.0001
---- format-3.7 FAILED

Comments, PTFs, metoo's anyone ?

I got the same thing.  I just ignored it, mostly because I don't do
much floating point arithmetic or formatting in tcl.

Now I recompiled tk-3.3 and tcl-7.0 with gcc-2.4.5, because otherwise
tk-3.3 failed the make test. After a complete rebuild, it worked ok.
Btw, this is 3.2.4 with Motif 1.2.

Reports of test failures due to (apparently) nonstandard printf formatting
under AIX have been coming in since 1991.  It should be mostly harmless.
