On Solaris 11 with gcc 5.5.0 (gcc211 on the compile farm), math.h has a
using std::log10; directive. This is unfortunate because std::log10 has
overloads for float/double/long double. To disambiguate this call,
cast the argument to double to fix the build.

We may wish to have a comment in the code referring to the original
problem, including perhaps the OS and the compiler versions?
Otherwise the need for this cast is not immediately obvious, IMO.

Thanks.

Agreed; this is ok with that change.

OK, will push with this comment:
      /* Solaris 11+gcc 5.5 has ambiguous overloads of log10, so we
         cast to double to get the right one.  */
