  I don't have any idea what is wrong, but looking at a handy i686 log
shows that mine didn't have the -fPIC, nor the -DPIC -DSHARED that you
have.  More worryingly, my output went into m_isinf.o and the final
file referenced on my system was m_isinf.o.dt

  Any chance you can attach the config.log (bzip2'd or gzipped) ?  If
it's excessively big, send it to me privately and I'll diff it against
my log from configuring / building / installing to see if I can see
anything (may take a little while, there will be spurious differences
e.g between i586 and i686).


If you need more info on this problem, I had errors compiling that section, 
as well.

The config.log can be found on the web (in its entirety -- 33K or so) at:

If you need more info, testing, whatever, please feel free to ask!
