The build script is there:
(took me a while to find it, and I still don't know where CXXFLAGS comes 

Indeed they overwrite config.guess with configfsf.guess, which is wrong. 
They are probably doing it so the resulting package is portable, but I 
guess they should use --enable-fat instead (or maybe 
--build=`./configfsf.guess` if they are tight?).

And they also seem to have CXXFLAGS that override the gmp ones (only on 

However that doesn't seem to be the only cause of their trouble, at least 
the libtoolize patch is needed there.

I'll try and get their build options in line.
