I tried to compile GMP 4.2 on a AMD Opteron 150, but "make check" fails.

The installation commands were

bzcat ~/gmp/gmp-4.2.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
cd gmp-4.2/
make check

OS is SuSE Linux 9.2 (x86-64)

Compiler etc. are

gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.3.4 (pre 3.3.5 20040809)
Copyright (C) 2003 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

ld --version
GNU ld version 20040727 (SuSE Linux)
Copyright 2002 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

as --version
GNU assembler 20040727 (SuSE Linux)

Output of the failed test:

The output of configure, make and make check are at

I'll try again with a different compiler, i.e. the latest stock GCC. 
SuSE have a history of borking their own gcc releases.
