Hi Sashidar,

This is a confirmed bug in the Tru64 C compiler. According to ANSI C we 
should be able to use 'pow' as a name in a structure and override the 
math library definition, but apparently the Compaq compiler doesn't 
accept that.

Berk has already worked around it in the CVS version of the sources - 
I'll put out a new release this weekend once I've tested things for 
automake 1.6 and autoconf 2.53.
