Here is a patch that should fix this problem.  I'm putting it into
g77 0.5.24 as well.  Dave Love, once this patch is confirmed as
working by Alexandre or someone else on SunOS4, could you please
install it?

The news.texi that I've written for 0.5.24 (and will later
submit patches to clean up egcs-g77's news.texi shortly before
final testing) is:

The @code{g77} driver now ensures that @samp{-lg2c}
is specified in the link phase prior to any
occurrence of @samp{-lm}.
This prevents accidentally linking to a routine
in the SunOS4 @samp{-lm} library
when the generated code wants to link to the one
in @code{libf2c} (@code{libg2c}).

	* g77spec.c (lang_specific_driver): Put `-lg2c' in
	front of any `-lm' that is seen.
