Richard Fateman sent you the answer for single-float.  If I remember
correctly, gcl only has double-float, so here is an answer appropriate
for that:

* (integer-decode-float least-positive-normalized-double-float)

* (scale-float 4503599627370496d0 -1074)


I also remember gcl being a bit sensitive to things on the very edge
of the number range so that constant 45...96d0 might not be converted
exactly right.
