Note that I'm seing the problem on both NetBSD/i386 and on NetBSD/mac68k,
both built with the distributed Makefiles.

As I cannot see any significant changes to the libm sources except
for the new way of making RCS Id's (and the inclusion of cdefs.h),
my suspicion is also with the compiler...

To further increase the confusion, I get the following
on NetBSD/pmax:

./perl lib/complex.t | grep -v ^ok
not ok 308
# 'cot(acot(z))' expected: '1.2' got: '1' for z = 1.2
