	Well, I don't know why, but they aren't defined in libc.so or
in ld-linux, only in libc.a:

$ nm --dynamic /lib/ld-linux.so.2 | grep \\.div
$ nm --dynamic /lib/libc.so.6 | grep \\.div
$ nm --defined /usr/lib/libc.a | grep -B2 \\.div
00000000 a *ABS*
00000000 T .div

	So I still think this is a bug.  libm.so should not have an
undefined symbol which is not defined in ld-linux.so.2 or libc.so.

PS: This is with 970928; I'm just now trying to build 971001, the
latest release (AFAIK).  BTW, where are now the latest snapshots?
alpha.gnu.ai.mit.edu does not seem to work...
