This is usually due to the wrong `math.h` being included. If you look at
command line (visible with `make VERBOSE=1` or `ninja -v`) for this
compilation rule and replace `-o path/to/foo.o` with `-E -o
preproc.txt`, the full path to the `math.h` should be output in
`preproc.txt`. Ideally, it should come from the SDK beside the `cmath`
header, but I suspect it is coming from `/usr/include` or somewhere like
that. Basically, something is adding `-isystem /usr/include` or
`-I/usr/include` and the system headers there are conflicting with the
SDK's headers.
