Sorry, I should have included the versions of things

This is on a freshly installed NetBSD 6.1.5 on simh from a recently
checked out git tree:

simh# uname -a
NetBSD simh 6.1.5 NetBSD 6.1.5 (GENERIC) vax

simh# gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.1.3 20080704 prerelease (NetBSD nb3 20111107)

$ ./vax -h
MicroVAX 3900 simulator V4.0-0 Beta        git commit id: f3af74e4

The backtrace is actually a bit deeper than just exp()

#0  0x7f7b6984 in infnan (34) from /usr/lib/libm.so.0
#1  0x7f7b6810 in scalb (16512, 1179648, 17406, 0) from /usr/lib/libm.so.0
#2  0x7f7b66df in exp (255017904, 735823842) from /usr/lib/libm.so.0
