Indeed if I do a "make install" before "make check" it now passes all the numerical tests. This is because it uses the symbols in the installed /hpc/work/fernandz/gnu/lib/libgmp.a but not in the .libs folder. Is there any reason for this ? I suspect something missing in my LIBPATH. Do you have "." in yours ?
