    I see the same problem without the patch. The stock Apple gcc 4.0.1

  -mtune=k8. The Apple gcc-4.2.1 compiler does and configure ends up using
  -mtune=core2. However both builds yield the same set of testsuite failures
  (none of which exist in gmp 4.2.1). Do you have access to a Intel based
  Mac to test gmp 4.3.0 directly?

A few Macs are used for the automated GMP builds.  One of the Macs
is a Core2.

Apple's compiler tools fail to impress.  See
for a sample of the problems they have caused.  It is possible that
you've run into another bug.

Did you remember to clean up your build directory between incompatible
