If you get a check failure, do not use the library.

  configure: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/lib CFLAGS=-m32
If you follow the supported build method, i.e., not outsmarting GMP's
configure about CFLAGS setting but imnstead setting ABI, does it work

(Does Sun's cc actually admit the -m32 flag?  They used to ask for some
very different flags, something zany like "-xarch=v8plus" for v9
processors using the 32-bit ABI.)
