  Hello! When building a universal binary of gmp 4.2.2, the t-get_d

"Universal" binary?
  Looks like an endian issue. I know you don't like Apple's gcc, but  
  all the tests pass when building just for the local architecture  
  (i.e. not building a universal binary). I confirmed this fact on Mac  
  OS X 10.4.11 with Xcode 2.4.1 and on Mac OS X 10.5.3 with Xcode 3.0,  
  both on a Core 2 Duo Intel MacBook Pro.
  Is this something that can be fixed in gmp, or should one not attempt  
  to build a universal binary of gmp?
If I knew what an "universal binary" were, I might be able to answer.

  The way I'm building gmp universal is through the MacPorts gmp port  
  with the +universal variant, which does it by configuring this way  
  (on 10.4.11):
Aha, so you're using somebody else's variant of GMP.  Then you need to
report problems to the maintainer of that variant.  If they conclude
there is a bug in GMP, they should report to us.
