  Ok, the use in floatobject.c can be removed; if defined, an ANSI
signature was being used, which we want to be doing unconditionally at
this point.  So I'm removing the test there.
  The use in object.h is more confusing; the log messages are not
terribly useful.  If anyone understands this one; I'd appreciate a
pointer.  Appearantly (based on the message associated with the
floatobject.c use), the define has something to do with a Macintosh
