FYI, the crash occurs when compiling reuse.c (from mpz and mpf)
with -O3 or -O2, but not with -O1. If all the other tests pass,
you may safely install the library. Of course, there could be
undetected bugs, but this is also true with older version of
Xcode (some users recommend not to use Apple's compiler).
