That symbol is a holdover from bygone days when, by default, a program
run on Linux set up the floating point hardware in a
non-IEEE-compatible way. With recent versions of the glibc that
routine no longer exists.
I don't think you will be able to install the prepackaged RPM file
easily. You may want to try a compile from the sources instead.
