Because configure checks for functions, but isfinite, isinf and isnan
are implemented as macros. For Dragonfly they explicitely set
isinf/isnan as available:

Shouldn't this be reported upstream?
I think this is an autotool detection bug.

finite seems obsoleted and isfinite should be used. 

It appears musl implements finite as function for backward compatibility.
Therefore the check does not fail for musl toolchains.

For glibc the check fails and the replacement functions for
finite, isinf and isnan are used.

For uclibc-ng the check fails, but the replacement functions cannot
be used, because finite is already defined as macro for backward
compatibility. (added a while ago for inetd..)

I think this is the best thing todo inside buildroot.

I think ruby's configure script should detect isfinite (function or macro) and
only fallback trying to detect finite otherwise.
