[Solaris 11 Express] math.h: No such file or directory

I was looking at running netperf to run some basic network performance benchmarks but I ran into the following problem trying to compile it:

# make
...removed output...
if gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I..     -g -O2 -MT netlib.o -MD -MP -MF ".deps/netlib.Tpo" \
          -c -o netlib.o `test -f 'netlib.c' || echo './'`netlib.c; \
        then mv -f ".deps/netlib.Tpo" ".deps/netlib.Po"; \
        else rm -f ".deps/netlib.Tpo"; exit 1; \
netlib.c:70:18: math.h: No such file or directory
...removed output...

Frankly, I thought math.h would just be there on the system, but after checking /usr/include it was not! ls /usr/include/math* returned nothing. However, I got the following clue I needed to install system/library/math/header-math by running:

# pkg list -a | grep -i math
system/library/math                           0.5.11- installed  -----
system/library/math/header-math               0.5.11- known      -----

The header-math is known but not installed, so after performing the install of header-math:

# pkg install header-math
               Packages to install:     1
           Create boot environment:    No

math.h was present on the system:

# ls /usr/include/math*

and my make completed without errors!

# make
make  all-recursive
