The Sun unbundled Fortran compiler has a hyper-optimized special math
library.  It might be worth trying something like this when linking:

g77 prog.o -lg77 -L/opt/SUNWspro/lib -lsunmath -lm

see if that helps.  (You might also need to add -R/opt/SUNWspro/lib.)

Also, what's your platform?  Tuning for the right processor can be a
big win on Sparcs.
