The manual has very little Norwegian, which is understandable given that
very few GMP contributions have come from Norwegians.  Specifically, the
chapter on how to write good, self-contained, time-saving bug reports is
written entirely in Swenglish.  ;-)

  What I was suggesting is that this test has been an issue with other compilers
  (gcc) and has required patches/fixes (the t-fat test, not the compiler) to make
  it work. Looking at such fixes (to the test) might be useful in diagnosing this
  Here is something potentially relevant from the archives:
  If none of this simulates any interest (I know that bears are start to
  hibernate at this time of year), I will jump in an figure it out myself.
That change is already in GMP 5.0.2, applied by an awake bear last
