Hey everyone!

Trying to compile GPM 1.20.1 according to BLFS instructions, I get the 
following error:

gcc -L/home/jeremy/gpm-1.20.1/src  -o gpm gpm.o main.o gpn.o mice.o 
special.o twiddler.o synaptics.o startup.o server_tools.o report.o tools.o
synaptics.o: In function `tp_process_action':
synaptics.o(.text+0x7db): undefined reference to `ceil'
synaptics.o(.text+0x822): undefined reference to `ceil'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [gpm] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jeremy/gpm-1.20.1/src'
make: *** [do-all] Error 1

I checked the archives via google, and also a general search on google, 
no hints - anyone else run into this one, or have any ideas?


I've heard it said that there are two types of *NIX admins, those that
have done something EXTREMELY stupid while logged in as root, and
those that WILL do something extremely stupid while logged in as root.
