I'm getting a few "make check" failures for GMP 4.2.2 (unpatched,
direct from GMP web site) on a core 2 duo macbook, OS X 10.4.11, when
nails are enabled. I'm not sure if this is really a bug, since nails
are supposed to be experimental, but nails have worked for me before
on other platforms so I thought I should report this.
It turns out that mpn/generic/sqrtrem.c requires a nail with an even
number of bits. This is not a platform specific bug.
You're welcome to generalize it, and contribute a patch under the
LGPL. And if you do, I promise I will not live up to Bill Hart's
allegations about sue threats. :-)
In the meantime, I'll make sure configure will reject odd arguments to
the --enable-nails option.
