mmm. I found the problem but was unsure that to do. My fix was to
replace the hypot() call with a "local_hypot()" which did the right
thing but did not cause an exception.
as I recall instead of doing something rational like SIGFPE the low level
hypot code signaled an error with an illegal instruction.
I guess I needed more guidance. I can go back at it. I was doing
native builds on a simulated 11/780 at the time and they completed
over night, so it was not hard to set up & test.

I want to help Dave McGuire get netbsd going on an MVII some time in the
future. I'm up the the 11/730, which makes me happy. I thank I have
the parts to put together an MVII in my back room.
