The f77_exception_encountered variable is no longer used by Octave. We left it in the header file so that older code that used it would continue to compile. The value will always be zero now. So it is safe to remove any blocks of code like

  if (f77_exception_encountered) { ... }

as they will never be executed now. This has been true since Octave version 4.4.0.
