  Ah ha! Ok, with no configure options it builds for aix64 and passes all
  its tests. With ABI=32 as the only configure option, it fails 9 of 30

It necessary that you specify what build options you're using.  A few
sketchy facts and claims that lots of things fail, can be seen as FUD.

OK, now I take it that you're saying the 'configure ABI=32' results in
failure for some yet-to-be-disclosed environment.  My tirelessly
repeated suggestion is that users file proper bug reports when they run
into a behaviour of GMP that they think is not correct.
