Thank you for the information.

I am using gcc-3.3.2 built from source, not an Apple
supplied compiler.

I thought I should at least be able to build a generic C
version of gmp by using the configure option
--host=none-unknown-darwin.  I thought this only uses C
code for gmp and no assembler code - or is this not
correct?  Yet I get the same problem when I run the test
suite.  Does this indicate that there is a problem with the
gcc compiler - which I should report to the GCC folks?
