First of all, I apologize for the "goofy" bug report/question I sent earlier.

You are absolutely correct. I think the problems in this particular build environment are fixed. GMP is part of the required software for building GCC so I reviewed EVERYTHING related.

GMP and the other required software AND GCC are now building. There is a small problem with building GMP though. This is a build from the "current" contents of the GMP repository. Here's a "snapshot" of the messages I'm seeing:

1020       CFLAGS="-O2 -pedantic -fomit-frame-pointer -m64 -mtune=sandybridge -march=sandybridge"
1021       CPPFLAGS=""
1022       MPN_PATH=" x86_64/coreisbr x86_64/coreinhm x86_64/core2 x86_64 generic"
1023 checking whether assembler supports --noexecstack option... yes
1024 checking for ar... ar
1025 checking for BSD- or MS-compatible name lister (nm)... ./configure: line 12151: 1q: command not found
1026 ./configure: line 12157: 1q: command not found
1027 ./configure: line 12151: 1q: command not found
1028 ./configure: line 12157: 1q: command not found
1029 ./configure: line 12151: 1q: command not found
1030 ./configure: line 12157: 1q: command not found
1031 ./configure: line 12151: 1q: command not found
1032 ./configure: line 12157: 1q: command not found
1033 /usr/lsd/Linux/bin/nm
1034 checking the name lister (/usr/lsd/Linux/bin/nm) interface... BSD nm
1035 checking how to print strings... printf

I have a full build log if required.

Best regards and STAY SAFE!

You attached a gzip-ed version of a gzip-ed version of ... what? The 
"log" starts with:

which () {  ( alias;
  eval ${which_declare} ) | /usr/bin/which --tty-only --read-alias 
--read-functions --show-tilde --sho
w-dot $@
#!/bin/bash -xv

This is not code from GMP, those are not messages from the 
configure&&make&&make check process...

Did you use some kind of script for the whole process?

Almost everything fails. There is probably something wrong in your 
building environment or in the building process.

I'd suggest you to start from a released tarball.
You can find the announce of the last release here:

If you can not build it, please ask to the fedora community. They 
managed to build the package for the fc36 (x86_64) flavour:
I'm sure it is possible to build it also for the core 37 one...

Then, if you find a bug, please read the following page before writing 
again to this list:
