Yes, I already contributed a patch to bc a while ago, and indeed, I
sent it directly to the upstream author. Interestingly, the patch and
discussion I had were precisely about libmath being re-generated, and
that was last year.

He had sent me some test versions of bc 1.07.2 which should have fixed
the problem, but I never took the time to reply it seems :-/

These projects with no mailing list, bug tracker or public version
control system are really difficult to work with :-/
