The above message contained the following:

They're the right ones.  Thanks.

The "configure.log" file contained this:

    checking for C math library... 
    checking for (void)sin(0.0) in default library(s)... yes
    checking style for cfortran.h... Standard

And the "config.log" file contained this:

    configure:2083: checking for C math library
    configure:2093: checking for (void)sin(0.0) in default library(s)
    configure:2102: c89 -o conftest -O   conftest.c  1>&5
    configure:2186: checking style for cfortran.h

Apparently, the "-lm" math library was not needed in order to link
together a test program that referenced the sin(3) function.  The test 
program was, effectively,

    int main()
        return 0;

Because you said that the "-lm" library was necessary, I can only assume
that the compiler ignored the "sin()" call above because the return
value wasn't used and the compiler knew that the function had no side

Would you please verify that the above program links correctly without
reference to the "-lm" library (use the command "c89 -O conftest.c").

A slight variation of the above test might fix this problem.  Would you
please try to link the following program without referring to the "-lm"

    int main()
        return sin(0.0) != 0;
