  I am currently trying to build gmp-5.0.2 on OS X Lion.
  What is the problem:
  Both ./configure and make run succesfully.
  But "make check" stalls at a certain point.
  The last lines I get are:
  > PASS: t-fdiv_ui
  > PASS: t-cdiv_ui
  Up to this point there is nothing but a blinking cursor,
  my guess is that the next check is in an infinite loop or so.
  Which is strange, cause it didn't had this issue on Snow Leopard.
Thanks for the bug report!

Unfortunately, I cannot do much, since I have no adequate system where I
could attempt to reproduce this odd problem.  You need to isolate it
yourself, and report it to Apple or us, depending on the nature of the
problem.  Alternatively, if somebody else on this list want to make a
contribution to the project, please help with isolating this problem.

I brave a guess: This is a compiler problem.  Apple's track record is
really poor in this area.  I see the LLVM name in your report.  That
compiler is very immature, and miscompiles most non-trivial programs at
at least some optimisation level.
