  Thanks for quick reply,
  I have tried gcc already, it compiles gmp but 3 tests crashed
  (core dump). Still I have to stay with xlC compiler,

There have been hundreds of gcc releases, I am sure many of them
will NOT miscompile gmp for your platform.

  I will try to take a look at gmpxx.h and reorganize it so xlC
  could compile it. What I would like to do is to compile the
  same code (with respect to config.h and other files depending
  on the system) at Windows and Aix. I hope there is easy way
  through those templates :)
Good luck.  The vendor C++ compilers are very rarely capable of
understanding the modern (i.e. 10 years old) C++ gmp uses.  I am
not even testing it during the gmp nightly builds, as it just
causes headache.
