Actually, it seems simpler than that: gaur produces plus zero already
from the multiplication:
regression=# select '-3'::float8 * '0'::float8;
whereas I get -0 elsewhere. I'm surprised that this doesn't create
more widely-visible regression failures, but there you have it.

If gaur is the only machine showing this failure, which seems more
likely by the hour, I'm not sure that we should give up performance
across-the-board to make it happy. Perhaps a variant expected-file
is a better answer; or we could remove these specific test cases.
Anyway, I'd counsel doing nothing for a day or so, till the buildfarm
breakage from the strerror/snprintf changes clears up. Then we'll
have a better idea of whether any other machines are affected.
