What is the advantage of your Apple-specific code compared to the one I
put into the repo?
Sure, using "long" is more compact that using quad. But I don't think
the new code runs slower. Do you disagree?
I hesitate to change the code again for these reasons:
1. The repo code seem to work already, see gmplib.org/devel/tm-date.html
2. We're late in the release process.
3. Your code variant almost surely will not work on non-darwin systems, so
we'd need to invent new m4 macros.
4. I am busy writing my disertation. :-)

Any chance you could check the present GMP code on these machines?
PS. You're now the GMP project's unofficial darwin guru. :-)
