  I agree with Torbjörn it is most likely a compiler bug. Peter did also report
  a problem with MPFR on the same platform, which turned out to be a compiler
  bug. (By the way, Peter, you might also try without optimization.)
The compiler hits worse bugs without optimisation, unfortunately.
Bitand is broken, which affects GMP's nails code (even with a nails of
zero bits).

How did you track down the xlc bug?  Did you manage to make the compiler
emit usable debug symbols?
