Doesn't quite work:

:-/

Thanks for the tip.  The configure script doesn't #include <math.h> so
isinf() is not mapped to __builtin_isinf().  Consequently the conftest link
fails:

    configure:21401: checking for isinf
    configure:21457: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -lresolv -lsocket -lnsl
    -lrt -ldl  -lm >&5
    conftest.c:252: warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'isinf'
    Undefined                        first referenced
     symbol                                                 in file
    isinf                               /var/tmp//ccmTAet6.o
    ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to conftest
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I found this code in /usr/include/iso/math_c99.h, included by <math.h>:

    #undef      isinf
    #define     isinf(x)        __builtin_isinf(x)
