    What is the logic behind this change?
  I have done some experimentation and Apple appears to have a bug.

I notice that I avoid the local prefix (typically L or .L) in other GMP
assembly files when refering between sections.  This makes some sense.

(Note the L(foo) inside GMP assembly files invokes the m4 macro L on foo
and expands this to the local right prefix and appends foo.)

Thanks for your GMP improvements!
