This feels like a build test sequence issue as opposed to a bug of any
real sort.  I have pre-existing gmp libs installed in /usr/local from
yesterday and am doing a reconfigure and rebuild today. On a Debian 8.8
system 3.16.0-4-powerpc64 with gcc Debian 4.9.2-10 I see a complete
configure and compile thus :

I have a previous build of gmp in /usr/local now :

ppc64$ ls -lap /usr/local/lib | grep -i "gmp"
-rw-r--r--  1 root staff 3925342 Aug 27 17:28 libgmp.a
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root staff     948 Aug 27 17:29

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root staff  259440 Aug 27 17:28

I replace those ( which were built with the configure --disable-assembly
option ) with the libs just built ( make install ) :

ppc64$ ls -lap /usr/local/lib | grep -i "gmp"
-rw-r--r--  1 root staff 1451740 Aug 28 17:19 libgmp.a

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root staff     948 Aug 28 17:19
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root staff      17 Aug 28 17:19 ->
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root staff      17 Aug 28 17:19 ->
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root staff   44904 Aug 28 17:19

Re-run the testsuite and everything is perfect.

In some manner the pre-existing libs were getting in the way likely
because LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib and thus the new libs in the
build_dir/.libs were not used. Either way a symbol seems to have
appeared because of the assembly files.
