Has anyone had any luck compiling gmp for an
The best I have been able to do is a successful generic
build. However, I would like to use some of the ia64
assembler routines ...
The first problem I run into is a configure error when
"checking if globals are prefixed by underscore". I get
the error using either cc or gcc-3.3.2 (configured with GNU
as). I got around this problem by specifying
--host="ia64-hp-none" when using "gcc -mlp64 -O3".
(My guess is that configure incorrectly thinks that
*-*-hpux is an hppa.)
At this point, I am able to do 'make', but I run into more
problems when doing 'make check'. The first is an "Illegal
instruction" when running t-bswap. Something is wrong with
the assembly code that m4 makes from mpn/ia64/mul_1.asm.
Any suggestions for how to further isolate the problem -
or to work around the problems - would be gratefully
