  AstLinux uses uclibc (like OpenWRT) and we don't have this problem.
One of the other AstLinux developers (Ingmar Schraub) came up against
the limits of uClibc libm some time ago.  He merged a few (somewhat
trivial) fixes into astlinux svn and we haven't had problems with libm
since (including building Asterisk 1.4.11 today).


  Try to grab Makefile.libm (should probably be a patch) and use it in place of
uclibc/libm/Makefile - you should also grab s_lrint.c and place it in
the same directory.  Remake uclibc (probably everything else, too) and
try it again.  It just might work!

  Good luck with mipsel Brian!
