[Ecls-list] How to get floating point underflow to yield zero?

In working through the Maxima test suite, there is at least one error
which is caused by floating point underflow. Other Lisp implementations
let floating point underflow yield zero, and that is what Maxima expects.
It appears that floating point underflow causes an error in ECL.
How can I convince ECL to yield zero instead? Thanks for your help.
