On my system, the check failed without libm and worked with it, so I
guess it's useful :)

I don't pretend it's useful on all systems, but I compiled lua with
default options, so i suspect it affects most systems; besides, libm
is probably used everywhere already so I don't think it matters (and
what would you want to do, check once without libm and if it fails,
once again with ? I think three checks is already bad enough)
