I've found a compiler tag that satisfies the one check in the configure 
script for ieee math compliance-- "-mieee", but i get errors with 2 other
checks.  here is what it spits at me:

checking if IEEE math works... nope
checking if IEEE math works with -mieee... yes
checking if IEEE math works with fpsetmask(0)... nope
checking if IEEE math works with signal(SIGFPE,SIG_IGN)... nope
Your Compiler does not do propper IEEE math ... 
Please find out how to make IEEE math work with your Compiler
and let me know (oetiker at ee.ethz.ch)
Check config.log to see what went wrong ...

while trying to compile on a solaris 2.6 box, I get this a few minutes
into the compile:

(cd src && make CFLAGS="-g -O2")
(cd perl-piped && /usr/local/bin/perl Makefile.PL)
ld.so.1: /usr/local/bin/perl: fatal: libcrypt_i.so.1: open failed: No such
file or directory
*** Error code 137
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `perl-piped/Makefile'

I've looked, but can't find where in the Makefile there is a reference to

hmm... ok, this is curious:
I just compiled on our new solaris 7 box, and it worked like a charm.
