missing fpresetsticky in ieeefp.h

I do not know whether this should be a bug report or not, I will ask 
prior to any further action.

Reading 'man fpresetsticky' show up a man page for FPGETROUND(3) and 
tells me the existence of the fpresetsticky routine.
Now take a look into <machine/ieeefp.h>, where this function should be 
declared. Nothing, I can not find this routine, it seems to be 'not 
available' on my FreeBSD6.1-PRERELEASE AMD64 (no 32Bit compatibility).

Background is, I try to compile GMT 4.1 and ran into this problem again 
(I reveal this error since FBSD 5.4-PRE also on i386).

If fpresetsticky() isn't available on amd64 anymore, it shouldn't be 
mentioned in the manpage. But it seems to me to be a bug, so somebody 
should confirm this.

Or there is a mistake I do all the time, in that case, you should 
correct me.

Thanks for your patience,
