i receive a configure error with gmp-5.0.1 (instead 5.0.0 is successful)
on a gnu/linux system (CRUX PPC 2.6 on PPC32).
CRUX PPC gmp port:

i suppose the problem is with host declaration (but with 5.0.0 it works) anyway i'm going to revert to gmp-4.3.2 because i also experimented this error compiling gcc-4.4.3 (and 4.4.2) on powerpc32 platform only (powerpc64 is fine).
