I wanted to compile GMP 4.1.4 on
(ia64-hp-hpux11.23), but got the following error:

td176> ./configure --prefix=$HOME --exec-prefix=$HOME/ia64-hp-hpux11.23 --enable-assert gmp_cv_asm_underscore=no
checking if .align assembly directive is logarithmic... configure: error: cannot assemble alignment test
