Ok, I have re-added the check for libm

The check for libm pulled in libm into LIBS, without which the tests for fesetround and floor fail (without consequences in this You don't need to link the mpfr_... oct-files with libm because they are linked to Octave, and Octave already links with libm. But for the configure tests, the link to libm has to be done.

Instead of testing for libm, you could add the libm manually to LIBS (I wouldn't do that), or you could remove the tests for fesetround and floor also.

I have added to the repository, but solved the other parts differently:

- The generated `configure` file is patched into the `hg archive` tarball (like several other generated files) with `tar --update`.

- Instead of a src/bootstrap script I have created a bootstrap target in the maintainer's Makefile

Thank you very much. I have already started to extend the with further checks.

P.S. Was there a particular reason to include a check for libm? I have removed that check since libm is not used.
