I just trying to do some heavier than usual math (for me).  I'm using
the -lm switch on the link command line.  The gamma and pow functions
are not giving me the answers I expect.
  For pow(1.000336, -5) I get Infinity.  Is this outside the range of
pow?
  For gamma(5) I get 3.178, I'm expecting 24.  Are there two functions
called gamma functions?
