I found the following thing I Presume is a bug.
hostname = my-64bit-itanium-server
uname -m = ia64 <-- 64 bit
uname -r = B.11.31
uname -s = HP-UX
uname -v = U
abilist=32 64 <--- the best value at the end ?
This 32 bit is the best decision on 64 bit platforms ?
What file must be fixed in gmp-5.0.3 to have a clear 64 ABI decision ?
I feel that the abilist is reverse sorted and the 1st value is trated as t the best value ?
Please see the GMP manual for information about ABI choice in GMP and
how to control it.
I don't recall the reasons for defaulting to the 32-bit ABI under hpux,
but surely there are some efficiency problems with hpux's 64-bit ABI.
