   One of these changes since last night fixed the make check failures on
on x86_64 darwin.

I have tested...

x86_64-apple-darwin12 (Xcode 4.5.2 using llvm-gcc)
x86_64-apple-darwin12 (Xcode 4.5.2 using clang)
x86_64-apple-darwin10 (Xcode 4.2 using llvm-gcc)
x86_64-apple-darwin10 (Xcode 4.2 using gcc-4.2)

All of these build and completely pass make check. So current gmp trunk seems
ready for RC3 on darwin.
