Can you tell us a bit more? Please edit your question:

(a) Do you have Mac OS X 10.x.y? Ubuntu x.y? Other?

(b) Did you download source or binary? From what page?

(c) What commands did you run?

Note: never compile Sage as root; never run Sage as root.

Note: to display code properly (such as commands you ran, or the error message that you got), you can select the corresponding lines and click the "101 010" button.

I suppose the OS on your computer is GNU/Linux.

Try installing libm, maybe by running the following command in a terminal.

sudo apt-get install libm

and try building Sage again.
