If you're making a new release, please consider the following patch.
GMP builds several objects from assembly code that end up with an
executable stack. The executable stack turns out to be a problem
on systems with a security hardened kernel such as "grsec". See
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=323944 for more
After applying this patch, you need to run autoreconf.
Why does only assmbly code suffer from this problem, why isn't C code
