integrating from 0 to infinity of the function:

e^(-x*(2+(1+sqrt(5))/2))*(cosh(x)+sqrt(5)*sinh(x))^((1+sqrt(5))/2)

is supposed to be:
(phi^phi - 1/phi)/2
where phi =(sqrt(5)+1)/2

Maxima can't find this result symbolically, but numerical integration
gives the expected result.

What about other computer algebra systems?
