It sounds like using the -xlibmieee flag is the way to go.  (math_1 is 
already doing an excellent job of not relying on errno).

Could you try compiling with this flag to see whether it fixes the 
problem?  (Opening up the 'configure' file and adding the flag to 
BASECFLAGS might be the easiest way to do this; there may be easier 
ways.) If it does, I'll cook up a configure patch.
