Turning off IEEE floating point messages for new gfortran compilers

Dear nmusers:
Some of you may have been starting to use gfortran 4.9 or higher, and when =
running nonmem 7.3, see IEEE floating point errors issued to the console or=
 terminal window. These error messages may be ignored, as they do not impa=
ct analysis. To prevent these messages from being issued, you must re-inst=
all NONMEM using the compiler switch -ffpe-summary=none.

You can to this by adding the option to line 250 in SETUP73.bat:
if "%f%" == "gfortran" set op=-O3 -ffast-math -ffpe-summary=none

or line 368 and 376 in SETUP73:
line 368:
if [[ $ftail == gfortran ]]; then op="-w -ffpe-summary=none"; fi
line 376:
if [[ $ftail == gfortran ]]; then op="-w -O3 -ffast-math -ffpe-summ=
ary=none "; fi
