  I've been playing with this some more by following a thread on a MySQL
  bug report which can be viewed here:
  It suggests that it actually takes three fixes to make this work.  There
    o Give "--build=x86_64-pc-solaris2.10" as a configure argument
    o Give "-m64" part of CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS and LDFLAGS
    o Configure and run make like
      % LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/amd64 ./configure .....
      % LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/amd64 gmake
  In order.  I've tried setting that to no avail.

Are you talking about MySQL or GMP now?  The link you sent us is about
building some version of MySQL configured in some special way.  The link
is completely unrelated to GMP.  Therefore, I don't think we should
discuss it here but on an MySQL list.

If you're actually using MySQL fixes on GMP, then their ineffectiveness
does not surprise me.  :-)

We're building GMP on different versions of solaris, please see
