	5.004_04 on NetBSD-1.1/i386 (486DX2/66 and non-MMX Pentium/100)
	5.004 ditto (testing against the 5.004_04 lib/complex.t test)

Not working (all with non-MMX Pentium/100)

	5.004_04 on NetBSD-1.3_ALPHA/i386
	5.004_04 ditto, but compiled with gcc- (gcc built on 1.1)
	5.004 compiled on 1.1, running on NetBSD-1.3_ALPHA/i386

Since the older binary works or fails depending on the OS release,
I'm betting for the moment on a shared library bug.

Any math library gurus out there?
