	That's from the glibc package. You must also install the
glibc-devel package. If you have, there should be a /usr/lib/libm.so
(which should be a symlink to one of the others). If this symlink is
not there, I suggest reinstalling glibc-devel.

	You might also want to try "rpm -V glibc-devel" to make sure that
your install has not been corrupted somehow.
