So we do agree that currently the testsuite runs only one of the
modes, that is fp-contract=off.
The test-suite does not run the other mode: fp-contract=on, that is a
new feature, i.e., more testing.

If we agree on these two points, then let's move forward, commit the
patch that Abe has just posted to add CFLAGS += -ffp-contract=off
and then in a second stage add an extra step for the new mode fp-contract=on.
