Yeah I know... and I'd love to know how to get ld to link the
ultrasparc3-sun-solaris2.9 build by the way!

Not on UltraSPARC, according to these charts:
It looks more like the 32-bit build runs at about 60% to 70%
of the speed of a 64-bit build, which is better than having no GMP
at all (and consequently no Fortran front-end for GCC 4.1.1).
