My own GNU/Linux system has been reporting failure of for
months now and I've finally gone to the trouble of tracking down the problem:
"-0" no longer parses as a negative zero on my machine, for whatever reason. 
Since there's really no portable way, AFAIK, to make a C implementation
produce a negative zero, I think it's best to just drop the tests that depend
on it.

This patch also makes the error messages easier to read, by
changing the sed command so that error line numbers are easier to match to
the test input.
