Looks like a build system bug, missing the -lm linker flag. Some
systems / compiler versions add this automatically, or it gets pulled
in by dependencies, or whatever -- so such a bug can get away unnoticed
for some time.

Maybe contacts should get a product on bugzilla?

As a workaround, you can try setting the LDFLAGS environment variable
(on bash,

export LDFLAGS="-lm"

before doing the configure/make dance).
