See my response to Andrea just now:

This seems quite bizarre: '          -INFINiTY   ' works but
'infinity' does not?  Please try in psql

	\set VERBOSITY verbose
	 SELECT 'infinity'::float4;

and send along the output.

My best guess about it is that strtod() is actively broken on your
platform, and is recognizing the "infinity" input but returning an
incorrect endptr.  I seem to recall that we've heard of such bugs
before.  Can you check for any updates from Sun that might affect
strtod()?
