That is entirely the wrong conclusion. You would have the MacOS X port crippled
in performance by removing -fast instead of simply appending an explicit -fPIC to
insure that PIC code was generated? That makes no sense whatsoever except to punish
MacOS X users for a slight glitch in their compiler. Lets try to be reasonable about
Separating options for parsing, code generation, ABI selection,
optimization, is critical. The GCC project has always been very
careful about that.
I am not going to touch an option that confuses these areas. It is
already really difficult to maintain GMP's configure. This Apple
braindamage has already cost me a working day but I will not allow it
to cause more problems.
This thread has now wandered off topic for the bug reports list.
Please follow up privately, or to the gmp-discuss list.
