Add initgroups.o and setgroups.o in otherlibs/unix/libunix.clib, then
launch again the compilation.

It seems that -lm is missing in BYTECCLIBS and/or NATIVECCLIBS (see
config/Makefile). However, the ./configure script should have done this
for you. This might be worth a bugreport.

Please pay attention and don't mix both build systems: either use make
or ocamlbuild, but don't run make after having used ocamlbuild nor
vice-versa. To be sure, start from a fresh CVS checkout.


Cheers,
