OK.  That's fine by me.

     I see.  I agree that it would be undesirable for the Perl module
     to depend on GSL just for gsl_isnan et al.
     I don't plan for this to be a long-term change.  The goal is to
     add gnulib modules for these routines, then revert this patch.
     So it shouldn't disturb the Perl module in the long term.
