I'll check what you've described on this issue on your other mail next
week.  Should I fail to make a clean fix I'll mention the problem and
your command in the PROBLEMS file.

Yes, we can leave this one unsolved...

I'm not very familiar with Solaris, so first a general question: what is
the most 'important' Solaris-like distribution?  I've understood that
Solaris 11 is no longer maintained by Oracle as an open-source projet
and that the project is now closed source.  Did you install your
environment from the Oracle download page

Looking for a free variant of Solaris 11 I've tested on OpenIndiana
expecting similar results than on Solaris 11 but did not encounter the
problem on the 'hypot' function.  Build was OK, but 'make check'
(rightly) failed on the hdtbl examples check as and
had only 1 page.
