I think that is the obvious solution, at least as far as V3 is
concerned.  We don't require user to say -lm when they use C++.
I consider it to be a bug that the C driver requires that explicit
setting a bug -- but, hey, that is a different story :-)

It doesn't on Darwin, actually, because the C89 math functions are in the libc-equivalent (libSystem). This suggests that the C driver also ought to include -lmx on Darwin. (Yes, the packaging is strange.)
