I think you missed the point.

Yes, if gcc is used then you end up with these dependencies.
That doesn't happen with the Oracle Studio 12.5 dev tools compilers.
Either way the point is academic as one can not build gmp and use those
assembly tweaks with anything else other than gcc. So perhaps this is
a build process issue wherein m4 is not being called correctly to
output the needed asm source foo.s files.
