  Not a MAC ... nope this is the head node of a SGI ICE cluster

SGI Internal Compiler Error cluster, an interesting name.  :-)

  The code makes cleanly.  We build everything in 64-bit by default.
  This is an HPC Center sight.  The actual message from the 'make check'
  output is:
  PASS: t-asmtype
  PASS: t-aors_1
  PASS: t-divrem_1
  /bin/sh: line 5: 20756 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) ${dir}$tst

  Any further thoughts ... I see that this error has come up before
  with gcc and patches have been provided to yield a fix.  Also, I
  have seen that --disable=static has been suggested.
How can a gcc patch be relevant to an issue with icc and gmp?
