Hi Troy,
label(btex $-\infty$ etex,origin);
Works fine.
I use MetaPost Version 1.005 with LaTex.
The other label statement generates an error.

  Can someone else verify this odd result?

  label(btex $-\infty$ etex,origin);

  produces a minus sign followed by another minus sign whereas

  label(btex $-\hspace*{1sp}\infty$ etex,origin);

  gives an output that is essentially desired. I'm using LaTeX as my engine for my labels.
