I obtained the 4.2.1 version of GMP source from
http://www.swox.com/gmp/, and it passed MD5 check.

'./configure' worked fine with no options
'make' worked fine
'make check' failed 2 of 9:

PASS: t-bswap
PASS: t-constants
PASS: t-count_zeros
PASS: t-gmpmax
PASS: t-hightomask
PASS: t-modlinv
FAIL: t-popc
PASS: t-parity
FAIL: t-sub
2 of 9 tests failed

I passed no parameters to ./configure, taking all the defaults.

gcc -v returns:

./config.guess returns:

./configfsf.guess returns:

Reading Section 2.5 of the manual seemed to imply that gcc 3.3.3 was
okay, and Section 2.4 seemed to imply that powerpc64 was the right
choice. I searched the list archives and I don't see anyone else with
the same problem.

Has anyone else seen this same problem?
