    Has GMP 4.2 actually been tested on a G5? In attempting to build
fink packages for gmp 4.2, we discovered that while GMP 4.2 can be built
and passes its testsuite on a G4 there are many testsuite failures when
building and testing on a G5. Specifically the problem shows up when the
configure option --enable-cxx is used. Without that option, the build passes
its make check on a G5.
ps This was with the current Xcode 2.2.1 development tools on a dual
2GHz G5 Powermac running MacOS X 10.4.6.
