  I got the following error during "make check" after
  (successfully) compiling GMP 4.2.1.  System information is as
  Operating system: OS X 10.4.6
  Processor: 2GHz PowerPC G5
  Memory: 1GB RAM
  Compiler: powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple
  Computer, Inc. build 5341)
  Error log:
Compiler bug.  That "build 5341" is no good for GMP.

The suggestion is that you uninstall the compiler and return to an
older one, if you need to compile GMP.

I have no opinion on which Apple compiler release is better.  It is
possible that 2.3 is less buggy that all their previous releases, and
just happens to get unlucky with GMP.
