I can dig up the 4.4 code and try it, but mind if I ask why?

As others already have written, the binary formats differ.

But a closer look tells that it might be using the assembly version, but I
really cannot follow how it is used with weak symbols etc.   Or else it is
the problem Matt wrote about, he has more knowledge about this than I do.

Someone (sorry, not sure who) said that the hypot code might be throwing
an exception by generating an illegal instruction.

I don't know who said that, or why.
Because it sure don't look like an illegal instruction signal to me.
