It's probable that the compiler used to build libm is much more
important than the one used to build perl itself, since all of the
transcendental functions live in libm.  If you still have all of the
various compilers available, it would be helpful if you were to get
the results of rebuilding libm with each one while linking with perl
.o files produced by 1.3_ALPHA's compiler.

Of course, all that's irrelevant if you're using the i387 assembly
version of libm; are you?
