Illegal instruction error in t-constants test

In building gmp-5.0.1, the make check reported an illegal instruction failure.  The build is on a Technologic TS-7553 SBC that uses a Cavium CNS2132 with a Faraday FA-526 core as described in  I'm actually in the process of building gcj, which requires building a new gcc, which requires GMP and MPFR.  (The MPFR check also reported 108 of 156 tests failed with an illegal instruction error.)  Can I just plow ahead with building gcc, or am I out of luck because the gcc that came with the TS-7553 is emitting bad code?
