benchmark 1.3

Francesco Potorti`-9
As Rick Niles <[hidden email]> pointed out there is a bug
in benchmark 1.3 which sometimes causes a division by zero on slowest
machines.  The patch sent by Matthias Roessler
<[hidden email]> fixes this.  

I am collecting the results that many of you are sending to me and to
the list.  I'll collect and post them when I have some.  

I'll also apply some suggestions to the source of benchmark, and
probably we'll use Sparc 10 as a reference, as Rick Niles points out
that it is the machine used as a reference for the Spec95 numbers, and
he has access to one.
