guys, 3 things:
1. my c++ code using your gmp libs would not link with your gmp compiled
This is why I had to compile your gmp with g++ (a well respected gnu
and that is where the couple of messages showed.
2. if you increase the verbosity of the gcc compiler (and I am sure, your c
these messages also show.
3. i have to take issue with the fact that you do not think my bug report
is not good... patch (one of the UNIX standards)
uses diff to apply code patches, and it is a diff that i gave you...
