It is good you get the assembler crash always, since non-deterministic
program behaviour is always annoying.

Apple has a tendency of following standards for relocations and object
file formats, and thus the GMP assembly code does not always work on
Apple systems.  Perhaps the assembler bug is triggered by unexpected
assembly code, perhaps not.
